1. inspiration

    i gain inspiration from other people and i’m lucky enough to be able to tap into that when i’m alone. but often times when i’m alone it can feel as though i am disconnected and alienated from others. i wish i would always remember that other people are there, that i am connected and that our fates are intertwined. then maybe i would be able to create more, work harder, because i make all this music to connect with others, to express myself to others, to share with others, to commune with others.

    like a song i hope to sing
    i sing it for you
    iike the words i have to bring
    i bring it for you

enki bilal, one of my favorite artists. i stumbled upon his work in a comic shop in rome on a family vacation when i was 19. his work is so textured, dark, and tortured.
