Date: Monday, August 11, 2008, 9:40 AMAlison dit beaucoup de choses, comme she likes the idea of an album
that transports you in a positive manner, that sometimes she
improvises her lyrics, but other times she sits and writes them
down,that if Jim has a song already fully-formed, she'll go with the
flow vocally, and that it's all about capturing a moment that is
transient, and that keeps changing long after the song is finished...
She's hesitant in explaining the meanings of the songs, and mentions
that while recording Particles & Waves in their home studio, some
type of recording instrument broke and they lost two whole songs and
The album title was picked out because Alison had attended physics
lectures the previous year and also due to books on 'chaos theory',
and it fit some of the song themes, like "Vanishing Point", but she
goes on to say that she and Jim have different ideas as to the
meaning of that song. Also that Jim wrote "Every Town" himself and
sings on it, but doesn't want to sing it live.
I think those are the main points of the interview. :)
