#Quote
1 At the end of the day it's all music. I think the big difference now is I used to write music just as music. Now the movie has become my conductor. The picture has now become integrated into my creative process.
2 The process of composing the film score for each movie is completely different. They all have their own personality and their own completely different life but there's never been a formula. Each time it's a new thing.
3 I love being in a band. I love that collaborative spirit, although some would suggest that I don't get involved in the collaborative spirit, but it's not true.
4 When I finished a song that I thought was good, I thought, I don't know where that came from, so I have no idea if I can do that again. I'm talking like, a hundred and fifty songs down the line. I still feel that.
5 I don't mind snakes. Growing up in South Africa there were a couple a snakes around... .and I'm not talking just about the government!
