The reason I don't tour is that I don't know how to front a band. What would I do? I can't really play anything well enough to deal with that situation.
I've had quite a lot of luck with dreams. I've often awoken in the night with a phrase or even a whole song in my head.
For instance, I'm always fascinated to see whether, given the kind of fairly known and established form called popular music, whether there is some magic combination that nobody has hit upon before.
The way 'Lux' was made is that there are 12 sections in here, though two of them are joined together. So there are really 11 sections, in a sense, and each one uses five notes out of a palette of seven notes, and my palette is all the white notes on the piano. That was the original palette.
