It's about the journey and the process. I do things because I love doing them, or trying them.

I love scoring. Putting music to picture is a rewarding challenge and one that relies on interpretation of emotion - as in, what is the pivotal feeling in a scene and which character's point of view is driving it at any given moment?

Tags: Character, Love, Music

The other day I was reading a blog and I linked over to Streisand's Web site, and it was amazing politically. She's so insightful and incisive. And she also says whatever she wants.

Tags: Amazing, She, Whatever

Am I coasting on some early success? Yeah. It was a good lucky break for me. But I would rather earn my way back again than simply conform to what people are expecting.

Tags: Again, Good, Success

Composing gives me a chance to work in multiple dimensions and helps me pare down my melodies into what is essential. Learning new skills has always energized me and scoring has opened up a world of sonic possibilities.

Tags: Chance, Learning, Work

Everyone wants to get into soundtracks. Everyone wants to do songs here and there. But, I think they want it for different reasons. I think I'm just tumbling through my life, enjoying playing with everybody.

Tags: Everyone, Here, Life

Guys don't really don't wanna hear if it's really smart, and women feel uncomfortable if you reveal stuff they're going to have to remember they did themselves.

Tags: Remember, Smart, Women

I ended up becoming so self-conscious that my songs stopped being about my life and started being about what people thought of my music. And that was really bad.

Tags: Bad, Life, Music

I have that thrill-seeking mentality, so when people want to know why my incarnations keep changing, or why I'll do something different than I did before, it's that same impulse.

Tags: Changing, Keep, Why

I knew that collaborating on songwriting would be difficult for a lot of people, because I was known very much, for my independence and the fact that I wrote these quirky songs that were not typical structure, not typical sound - you know, really original stuff.

Tags: Difficult, Fact, Stuff

I mean, I kind of remember... I'm 36 now, so it's kind of hard for me to relate to what it was like when I was 25, or 24, but I do remember a period in time when that's how I defined who I was, by the music I listened to and the movies I went to.

Tags: Movies, Music, Time

I probably had some impact, because everyone keeps telling me that I did. I like to feel like I'm coming out with something to try to make room for other young women to make their art.

Tags: Art, Try, Women

I was trying to break out of the suburbs, and when I did break out, I don't think I took my whole self with me - I think I played a role of being too cool and hip.

Tags: Cool, Self, Trying

I wear clothes that most people in the Midwest would probably deem inappropriate at my age. And I rock a bikini all summer long. I know that it's not normal, but I just don't care. I live once.

Tags: Age, Care, Rock

I'm just out of touch with new music in general, and I only know about it if I'm hanging out with someone that knows about it, or I catch it on YouTube.

Tags: Music, Someone, Touch

It makes sense - you wanna gather a lot of people together, and Vegas really does that well. New York can, but you know the hassles. I've lived there. It's an entirely different beast.

Tags: Makes, Sense, Together

It seems to me like the Internet allows you to break that structure a little bit. You know, here's your CD that's going into stores, here's your EP that you offer online, here's a subscription for songs you recorded on the road, here's your live stuff streaming.

Tags: Here, Road, Stuff

Lana Del Rey seems to be bothering everybody because she allegedly 'remade' herself from a folk singing, girl-next-door type into an electro-urban kitty cat on the prowl (of course I like her), and they feel she is inauthentic.

Tags: Everybody, Her, She

Like, I kind of developed my musical style in a vacuum. Even though I listen to a lot of stuff, the way I wrote was in my bedroom, really privately. It's still the way I write, actually.

Tags: Actually, Though, Write

My identity has everything to do with me and my instrument. It doesn't have to do with what production style I use, or how many people played on it, whether it's sparse or grandiose or whatever. And I'm social, frankly.

Tags: Social, Whatever, Whether

So how does Liz Phair feel about Lana Del Rey? Well, as a recording artist, I've been hated, I've been ridiculed, and conversely, hailed as the second coming. All that matters in the end is that I've been heard.

Tags: Artist, End, Second

That's what music is to me. Like, stuff that I really like to play loud. And I've got my quiet CDs, too, that I listen to around the house, but if you can't go there, then... Everyone gets so upset with me, I can't win.

Tags: Everyone, Music, Win

The big news already broke. The file-sharing and all that stuff, it's a done deal. And I think figuring out how to make that a fair exchange for the people that make music is still an issue.

Tags: Big, Done, Music

When I use the Internet, it's pretty much strictly for music. Checking out other people's web sites, what's going on, listening to music. It's pretty much a musical thing for me.

Tags: Listening, Music, Pretty

Tags: Attention, Used, Women

Tags: Clear, Kids, Young

I'm really happy to be a mom, and I'm proud of the phase I'm in.

Tags: Happy, Mom, Proud

I remember even getting kicked out of a bar once because I was too loud and obnoxious.

Tags: Getting, Once, Remember

I am a feminist, and I define myself: Be yourself, because if you can get away with it, that is the ultimate feminist act.

Tags: Dance, Mirror, Songs

Tags: Creative, Knew, Why

Tags: After, Press, Read

Tags: Love, Parent, Parents

I always give the encore over to chaos, so people can yell out requests and I can hack my way through a song that I don't really know anymore.

Tags: Chaos, Give, Song

I am comfortable performing now. I love it!

Tags: Love, Performing

I am just like you and everyone else. I am trying to live my life as best I can.

Tags: Best, Life, Trying

Tags: American, Morning, Son

I can't say I don't get nervous, but I really kind of enjoy performing now.

Tags: Enjoy, Nervous, Performing

Tags: Life, Nice, Trust

Tags: Artist, Believing, Time

Tags: Love, Musically, Stretching

Tags: Design, Mean, Public

I think good art happens on that edge between comfortable and in a lot of pain, you know what I mean?

Tags: Art, Good, Pain
