Natasha -The traditional role of the bass in music is one of rooting and foundation. Yet what is this madness that compels you? I honestly find the effect most unsettling.
Ben – Good. I’m glad you’re unsettled by it. These guys let me have the freedom to do that because usually who cares what the bass player plays right? you rock and roll…
Natasha – Usually it is not the lead instrument I will agree with you. So do you feel more freedom ….do you feel more control?
Ben - No control is freedom.
This band allows everyone to have the freedom to do that.
Natasha - You’re rebelling against the structural ideas…
Ben -No, I’m embellishing not rebelling
Chris – I think we’re all rebellishing
