With most people, there’s a separation between the two
hemispheres of their brain.
One is for words and logic, the other is for music and drawing, stuff like that.
That’s why when you start making up a story, and you
try to sing it, you become very monotone - they come
from two very separate parts of the brain.
I don’t think that Julian has that separation. I think that music is the
way that he thinks of life.
There’s a lot of great things about music. It’s like- I could do a hundred interviews and it won’t be the same as the song. That’s why you do music. It’s the song itself where everything lies. It’s just that feeling that you have. It gives you the joy and understanding that you don’t have in reality. And it’s not like a shortcut to reality, it’s more like an expansion on the understanding of what’s going on. I think it’s interesting on many different levels. And for me, as soon as I started to understand how music worked I couldn’t get enough. And I was stuck. It was what I had to do. Or just… kill myself because I didn’t want to be a dentist or anything else.
