Glenn Kotche Quotes 1422659

I find a difference between what gets called world music - a fusion of western music and music from different cultures in more of a modernized version - and Explorer Series stuff, which is completely undiluted indigenous folk music. That's a lot more powerful than a lot of the super-processed stuff that comes out now. — Glenn Kotche

I hope people just enjoy the music. I'm not worried about any sort of legacy.

None of that matters to me if the music is crap. — Glenn Kotche

Glenn Kotche Quotes 1983359

I have to have the reasons to make the record. There are just too many records out there, especially when it's something as audacious as a solo percussion record with solo drumming music on it. There better be a reason behind it. — Glenn Kotche

Glenn Kotche Quotes 2148943
