I’m interested in the idea of the memory of the listener. If a person looks at the painting, the painting is static, it doesn’t go away and he can look at what he wants to look at. And his eyes travel, you can’t control the way someone’s eyes look at a painting. The problem with music is that it’s chronological. You can’t escape the fact that it starts at a certain time and that it ends at a certain time. You cannot get away from that. And that’s the thing about music that I’m fascinated with- how do you create the illusion that the time isn’t linear? The impression that it doesn’t move in a straight line, even though it does. Just like the painting is static. A person working with that medium cannot change the fact that he has the flat surface, that’s a part of it. And I can’t make the clock going another way between the start and the end of the piece.
