Gira is one of the most inspiring figures in music I think. Something about his commitment is deeply heartening and obviously the music is awe-inspiring in its own right. The new album is a complete beast and it also makes me want to listen to every Swans record back to back forever. Two hours is not enough.
I like loud electric guitars because I like how you can just lose your entire being in the sound. But I can’t find myself in a situation where we’re doing typical chord progressions— it just seems cliché to me. Even changing chords sounds like a cliché sometimes, though it happens occasionally in our music. [laughs] But you find ways to push yourself into the sound through repetition. It doesn’t stay the same. It morphs constantly.
