My intentions with any of my music is to keep it futuristic and updated and be experimental and try new things.
In 1981, I was a futurist - or at least I was a guy who put on a futurist hat occasionally - and I wrote about the 21st century.
Futurists get to a certain age and, as one does, they suddenly recognize their own mortality.
People used to define me as a futurist designer, but, you know, the future is now for me.
I have no desire to write historical anything or futuristic anything - I want to find a way to get at the essence of what it's like to be alive now. The reason why great novels from centuries ago are still great is because that's what they were doing; it's like a message from another culture.
The Futurists were an art movement in the early 20th century which basically glorified machines and the Industrial Revolution.
Telling a story in a futuristic world gives you this freedom to explore things that bother you in contemporary times.
Many futurists use a checklist approach to make sure they're covering a sufficiently wide set of topics in terms of both research and brainstorming during a foresight exercise.
I'm not really frightened by experimenting - that's the main thing. I really like mixing very old beautiful pieces that are from thrift shops or that have some historical value with quite new futuristic things.
Futurists wanted to suggest movement by means of a dynamic painting; Duchamp applies the notion of delay - or, rather, or analysis - to movement.
I hardly see myself as a futurist.
I've written a detective series myself, set in an imaginary, and slightly futuristic, Chinese city. The novels have an extremely tenuous relationship with the real world, since the hero is the city's Hell and ends up with a sidekick who is a demon.
That's what my music... I'm working on a solo record right now, it's gonna be more hip-hop than anything, like electronic hip-hop, futuristic hip-hop. I'm probably gonna be rapping on it.
The only shoes that look futuristic are Crocs, but they would be terrible to use in a futuristic movie.
I'm a futurist.
