How do you go about starting a new track? is it random and chaotic or fairly routine?
Everything I do is random and chaotic. I go to enormous lengths to avoid any kind of routine.
I sit down in my studio, watch a few grainy 1960s documentaries and then start throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks. Something eventually does and from then on I go where it takes me.
Music machines are very helpful at making suggestions of their own. Sometimes it feels like I have a bunch of musicians in the room to jam with.
