I think the trick is to find a balance between understandable and complex feelings. Giving a piece enough normality for people to connect with but also enough obscurity to keep there attention. Something new with something comfortable. That universal connection is usual through a beat, because everyone has a sence of rhythm. Even if they dont think so. What I dont want it for my work to become to personal and loosing my audience through my self indulgment. I always try to be thoughtful towards what I want people to take from my music. And try and subtly lead them in that direction. Music without thought is like a building on sand. It doesn’t last very long. Wishy Washy groups and producers come and go but something like Shostakovich or Brian Eno for a more contempory example, will be with us for generations.
