There is nothing in the world like the rush of going down a mountain and harnessing all that energy and all that gravity and using it for your own pleasure. There’s just nothing like skiing.

I’ve been trying to make records and I describe it almost like a "movie for your ears" where it’s a little unconventional in its shape and form, but there’s something that’s intriguing in keeping you wanting to wait and see the next frame of film, except in here what’s coming around the corner for your ears.
