ugh & that choker and hair combo is so gross.
I know it seems ironic to people that he played with Deadmau5 after giving this speech, but read his quote again. What he’s really talking about is that music should be felt and come from an emotional place. He’s saying it should be respected as an art AND a craft and that cookie cutter, slickly produced auto-tuned songs are not music. You can make emotionally true electronic music and be a master of that instrument. It’s kind of like the difference between getting a piece of flash art as a tattoo or getting something custom done that means something personal to you. Even if both tattoos are butterflies, one is infinitely more valuable.
