Natural disasters are terrifying - that loss of control, this feeling that something is just going to randomly end your life for absolutely no reason is terrifying. But, what scares me is the human reaction to it and how people behave when the rules of civility and society are obliterated.

You can't just take an image and randomly distort it and call it art - although many people in La Jolla where I come from do precisely that.
I am always looking for ideas, whether it is in art on the street or in my world travels. It comes to me randomly and unexpectedly.
Every day, you have to make three hours of music, just randomly improvising, and that's a great way to weed stuff out.
