Yes, it is true, I do like opposites. In many ways. I am attracted to a band sound resulting from musicians having developped a very personal voice – and using that voice in a an exclusive way for my band – not sounding the same as when playing in a different band. Creating a band sound is what maybe interests me the most in band leading. And I think an interesting band sound often consists of opposite forces, not necessarily always drawing from the same sources, or pointing in the same direction.
L’équilibre des contraires… if you like reading in French.
