Are there any specific ideas, tools or sounds that you already now know you wish to include in your next album, or do you just go "Let's do this!" and start conceptualizing and experimenting?

Well I've just built a new studio so that will probably feature quite prominently. I never have any idea what I'm going to do next - that is almost the entire point.

When I was about ten I used to like the feeling of not knowing where I was and my friends and I used to go wandering off for miles deliberately trying to get lost.

We'd always find our way home because our little legs couldn't take us that far but the feeling of exploring the unknown was very attractive.

That's what I try to recapture when I'm making music.
