“Music is defined in a technological way by recording. This is something that I found when I first started to use recordings of the work I do. If it’s on a CD, it will be heard as music whereas if you hear them out in the environment, there’s something else going on – it’s organic, not fixed or edited. This was a huge dilemma for me when I first started recording things because I thought, ‘this is not the actual work’ but in a sense, it’s like a photograph of the work.  […]Maybe music is the personal touch and maybe the other things I do are very impersonal: with the kinetic things, you can’t look at them and say that you know [anything about] the personality that made them but, with the music, you can sense me as an emotional, feeling person.”
