The title of the track “T27” is the number of the train from Beijing to Lhasa.  It’s very long, about 48 hours and when I rode it I had no place to sleep so by the end I would drift in and out.  I think the song is a bit like that train ride: a bit too long, sometimes noisy, sometimes boring, but a pleasant experience overall.

Providence, Rhode Island USA

What is the last thing you ate?

Indian style Butter Chicken

Your addiction?

Candy.  I love all kinds of candy.  Lately, chocolate covered almonds and those Starbust packages with only red ones.

Mostly books.  Cheap instruments too.

One quote?

I always liked that Lennon quote “Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.”

I don’t watch too many movies, but I like “The Taste of Tea”

Franny and Zooey by Salinger

Which song do you listen to when you wake up?

I’ve been back into Ride lately (remember them?) and every morning I listen to “Today” by them.  It the best song to listen to in the morning!

A song you wish you wrote yourself?

All the ones with clever lyrics.

The song to be played at your funeral?

I suppose something by Arvo Pärt would be fitting.

A song for relaxing on a beach?

Definitely “Ce Matin La” by Air.

What do you think about music industry in 2010 and filesharing/internet as a promotion tool?

I think it’s great that people can share their music with other people without having to deal with people trying to turn it into profit.  It’s great for music.

Favourite venue?

I have a lot of good memories of The Magic Stick in Detroit.

Favourite concert?

I saw Godspeed You! Black Emperor in 2003 and was blown away.  I never heard anything like that before.

Favourite place on earth?

Lhasa, Tibet

Where would you wish to wake up tomorrow?

In my bed, but I want to sleep in a little.
