“I know I don’t want to make music that people can point at and say, ‘That’s an Oriental or an Asian sound,’ because whatever I make is going to be Asian art. So this is like — break down that idea and give you a whole new thing to listen to.” This is music that pays respect to roots and grows out of them, while grappling with totally new ideas.”
