When I sing the songs, there's a color tone and a place, and it's not a place that I remember in reality. It's usually based on a photo that I took - 'cause those photos don't look like the real world. The film distorts them, and the colors get exaggerated.More Phil Elvrum quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All things in the world are singing a song, reciting a poem, inaudibly, to their surroundings, to the things they encounter.More Phil Elvrum quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I wanted to lift the aspects of the lyrics and imagery that I found sincerely powerful and touching, plus the amazing musical extremities, and make my own thing. That's what making music has always been for me. Synthesizing a nonexistent kind of music that I wish existed because I wanted to listen to it.More Phil Elvrum quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If my music is political in a way, and it might be, it's in the way of generating a sensitivity in people, a deeper awareness of the world around them. That's my goal, at least.More Phil Elvrum quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When I read War and Peace in Norway, really far away from humanity for a long time, it was such an amazing, affirming blast of "humanity" in all forms. It totally cracked my mind-nut open and rainbows shot out. I loved humanity and being alive, rather than wanting to bury my head in the snow.More Phil Elvrum quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
