I’ll start off by saying I love animals. You can only have that kind of passion with something you are passionate about. I’m passionate about getting better. I love the process of creating and developing projects. I’m passionate about the process of trying to get better. There’s a certain amount of pressure with every single creative project, but I’m going to do the best I can.
I can see what you are getting at. You don’t make great money. At least I haven’t made enough money to make a comfortable standard life for myself. So how long do you plan on making this job?
I wouldn’t say I’m planning on it full time, I’d say I’m thinking about it full time next year. I’d like to stay for a long time. I just don’t have the freedom of work right now.
For some artists this may be a problem. The more you do, the harder things get, and it gets harder to get away from what you’re doing.
Exactly. It’s a tough road. I could have a really good job that makes me a lot of money doing my thing. If I wanted to spend it all, I’d be at home, I’d be making music. I don’t want to be an artist where I have to be in the studio. There are more creative ways for me to make my living. I’m looking for opportunity everywhere. I don’t know how things are going to work out for me right now with the projects that I’m doing. I just don’t have the freedom to be in the studio.
It’s been a long road. I was talking to someone [recently] about what is one aspect of your success that is probably going to be lost. He was saying it might be lost in making something better…
Yeah. There’s another factor that is happening with things in creative fields. There’s this idea that you can’t just make something better. You just have to fix it. If I do something that’s actually good, it will be lost.
Can you feel an audience right now that is looking to watch your projects?
I’m not sure. Everyone is so eager to get out there and get their shit together before there’s a huge, public breakdown of the creative processes in this industry. I’m starting to realize there’s a real risk that you won’t see a certain kind of project. You won’t see things that have enough substance to be successful
