“When you record something, or listen to something while having the intention of recording it, you hear things differently. All of the sounds we hear right now, are actually a disturbance to our interview. But if you stopped to hear these sounds as a source to record, you would start to hear something else. You’d hear the room resonating, and you focus on these people walking, and at a certain point you find something musical about it. My job is to find these moments, and to archive these musical moments that happen in life. And it’s a great opportunity for me to stop and listen to the world.”
