tmf: What inspires you to compose?
CC: I guess part of it comes from feeling dissatisfied, like life would be completely cheap and grim and oppressive without music. If your life was fine and you were content then you wouldn't bother writing. It comes from mainly wanting to build these internal struggles, almost like mazes, within yourself, just so you can find your way out of them. I guess on one level it is entirely an irrational impulse.
