My Job is to look for balance. I have a theory: What seems in balance, to us, whether aurally or visually, comes from a distant , primal memory of something in nature. When something rings true, its because it harkens back to some moment of truth in the universe. You just know it when it happens. With Artists, you can see it happen. A band will be playing and something starts happening and everyone starts looking at each other in a certain way. It's by no means an exact science. It's just a feeling that is.
