"When I was writing this piece, I couldn't find much down-time for the initial part of my writing process. I usually like to swim laps and think about my piece, but instead I found myself on hotel treadmills, listening to music to pass the time. Rather than have a blank slate on which to draw, my brain was filled with the sounds, rhythms, textures and pacing of LCD Soundsystem, Nine Inch Nails, Silversun Pickups and Florence and the Machine. This music didn't have to fight hard to find a way into 'Kinetic.' "
