“I love the rules, but I want the rules to create a situation in which the music that results breaks or re-frames some idea about what music is or was or is supposed to be.”


Sam Amidon

“I wanted to do an album where it would have radically contrasting sonic environments, but still feel like it’s all coming from one creative space.”

“Making these remixes had been like going to school for me. […] It was a good way to learn the software, to define the world I was making.”

Ben Greenberg (The Men, Hubble)

“I’m really interested to see what a band looks like in 20 years, because I love bands.”

SXSW Music 2013
