“I don’t make— and it’s never been my intention to make— music in order to be liked. I create it for me, because I have a need. If others like it, it adds an extra dimension of pleasure”

“Mind your own, avoid subordinating, stay away from collecting points for correctness, if possible, save a large amount of respect for others or others’ values, but don’t walk the line, take as much time as possible with nature and create as much as possible; it doesn’t matter what as long as you create.”
