Just ? that one thing that happened one time and you can loop that incessantly and maybe, uh, find a second ending somewhere else. And listen to an African record and find a rhythm from there and uh, some salsa piano, and uh, classical music and reggae, and funk. Beats from the Baltic region, and Chinese music... and whatever, just from any source. Uh, from old records or CDs, or from stuff you recorded yourself, and you chop it up and get it to match. Get it to be in the same tune, get it to be the same kind. And then magically somehow, you find things that go together. And that's the miracle of this type of music-making.

Just because I really...
Just because I really...
Just because I really...
Love you...

Just because I really...
Just because I really...
Just because I really...
Love you...

Just because I really...
Just because I really...
Just because I really...

Just because I really...
Just because I really...
Just because I really...
Love you...

Just because I really...
Just because I really...
Just because I really...

Um, you get the real sound...
I could play that; dum da-dum, pa-dum pum, dum pa-dum pa-dum... I could play that on my melodica, I could get an orchestra to play it, but that's not the point. I could also write something else, I could write dum-dum pa-dum pa-dum or dum-dum... I could write anything. Get musicians to play, I could record them. Uh... and that's cool and you do that too but the whole point of it is that you find these sounds and when you hear them, you can hear... you hear the context. You hear where it was recorded, it has so much... it comes from a place. It's not just a melody. It's a real... what is it? I don't know. It's magic. And to mix those different magic moments together, you create something new that... but it has... you can hear it because it has all these echoes of the past and it's, uh... I mean that's - that's why they pay me big bucks.
