This is a great interview with Daft Punk about their new album and their feelings on the music they hear these days. I feel similarly to them when it comes to all art really, that there are many things that come pre-programmed, hot of the assembly line and pushed out through computers, and that all too often these things fail to move you.
This is not to say all things made with a computer are bad. Not everything made with live instruments, or a film camera, or written in a Moleskine notebook comes out brilliantly. But sometimes the extra time and effort, the love and heart put into making things ‘the hard way” yields incredible results.
It just dawned on me a little while ago that I haven’t turned the radio in my car on for at least a month. I’m filtering out the massive waves of media, and only taking the best with me in all of the art forms that I like.
