Anything goes. You always find interesting things that way.
Quotation of Beck


Art is the child of Nature; yes, her darling child, in whom we trace the features of the mother's face, her aspect and her attitude.
Quotation of Beck


Every time you go in, it's like starting over. You don't know how you did the other records. You're learning all over. It's some weird musician amnesia, or maybe the road wipes it out.

I got so involved in each thing I was doing. It's all over the place. I can imagine it being a little disconcerting.

Quotation of Beck


I had long hair when I was a teenager.

Quotation of Beck


I hear a lot of bad TV commercials that try to sound like Where It's At. That pretty much turned me off from using the electric piano for a lot of years.
Quotation of Beck


I just go in the studio and write on the spot and see what comes out.
Quotation of Beck


I sat out a few years because I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do next. So many things were changing in music and in culture, so it seemed like a good time to step back.

Quotation of Beck


I think you have to keep a childlike quality to play music or make a record.
Quotation of Beck


I wanted the guitar to sound like something off of a Howlin' Wolf record. There's something beautifully awkward about a sample.
Quotation of Beck


I was coming from the school of home recording and stumbled into this guy Carl Stevenson, who I did Mellow Gold with. He was coming from the hip-hop world a bit.
Quotation of Beck


I was thinking about bringing introspection on Sea Change and figuring out a way to make it work with break-beats.
Quotation of Beck


I was trying to get the album done before the baby came, but he beat me to it. So he spent his first month in the studio with me. He was there a lot.
Quotation of Beck


I wasn't afraid of having it sound similar to Odelay, because that's a sound that we spent a solid year working on and finding.
Quotation of Beck


I would love to do an electronic record. There's just so much to see and do and try. And life goes by.
Quotation of Beck


I'm always recording. I'm always doing stuff. There are songs from Guero that were recorded five, six years ago.
Quotation of Beck


I'm just taking one step at a time. I could zigzag one way, but it's not usually on purpose.
Quotation of Beck


I'm the artist formally known as Beck. I have a genius wig. When I put that wig on, then the true genius emerges. I don't have enough hair to be a genius. I think you have to have hair going everywhere.
Quotation of Beck


If someone is making a judgment when they don't have firsthand experience, it's intolerant. How can you make a judgment on something you don't know about?
Quotation of Beck


If you have a wide range of taste, you're just going to gravitate in all directions.
Quotation of Beck


In Japan, you get on the bullet train or the airplane, and I loved the little speeches the stewardesses would do. They even do little speeches before you play gigs.
Quotation of Beck


In the past I was completely unaware that people would listen to my records and have some kind of idea of what I was and have a certain expectation.
Quotation of Beck


In the past it seemed like I was making fun of rap a little bit. But it was more me making fun of myself, since I'm not technically a rapper, whatever that means.
Quotation of Beck


In the studio, I'm always throwing people on different instruments.
Quotation of Beck


It's difficult to put out albums on a more regular basis because of the way the record company works and the way promotion is, so creatively there a massive gulf.
Quotation of Beck


It's pretty much impossible to clear samples now. The ones we did use were absolutely integral to the feeling or rhythm of the song.
Quotation of Beck


It's really hard for me to commit, one way or the other. I was just always creating and seeing what came out.
Quotation of Beck


It's really weird creatively, because you get 10 or 12 songs every two or three years, and you want those songs to work as a whole.
Quotation of Beck


No one should drive a hard bargain with an artist.
Quotation of Beck


Now it's a little bit prohibitive to sample. It's just so damn expensive, and it's such a hassle trying to clear things.
Quotation of Beck


Sea Change was so specific. From the beginning it was set what it was going to be. All the other ideas that I had at the time I had to put to the side.
Quotation of Beck


Sometimes things in life take a few years to digest, and they find their way into the work later on. Sometimes I'm writing about things from eight years ago-they just took a long time to distill and come out in the appropriate way.
Quotation of Beck


The guys I was playing with for a lot of the '90s had all gone off to other bands, so I found myself, for the first time since Odelay, at square one, by myself.
Quotation of Beck


The repercussions of what you put out and what people gravitate to in your music never registered at all. I never had that thing that maybe other bands have-a specific idea of what they are and what their sound is.
Quotation of Beck


The years keep going by and you realize, Wow. Doing these records is such a process: going on tour for a year and a half, then you get home and you want to do other things.
Quotation of Beck


There are a lot of people who really abused sampling and gave it a bad name, by just taking people's entire hit songs and rapping over them. It gave publishers license to get a little greedy.
Quotation of Beck


There is something about playing with a group, but there's also something abut not having to explain stuff and just getting what you want.
Quotation of Beck


There were songs I left off the album, real raggedy blues stuff, some electronic noisy stuff. It just didn't fit.
Quotation of Beck


There's 40 or 50 songs that nobody's heard that I've done in between albums. There's a whole evolution from Midnite Vultures to Sea Change that's never been released.
Quotation of Beck


There's never any pressure on the music having to be something.
Quotation of Beck


There's some quality you get when you're not totally comfortable. When you're not doing what you're used to, you could completely fall on your face. You could completely blow it.
Quotation of Beck


This is the first time since Odelay where I'm playing most of the instruments. If someone were to say this album sounds similar to Odelay, well, it just makes that sound.
Quotation of Beck


To me, it was like, if the world was going to end in 1999, which is what everyone was talking about, what would the time capsule be? So I was riffing off all the stuff that was happening at the time.
Quotation of Beck


Tonight the city is full of morgues, and all the toilets are overflowing. There's shopping malls coming out of the walls, as we walk out among the manure. That's why I pay no mind.
Quotation of Beck


Two men look out the same prison bars; one sees mud and the other stars.
Quotation of Beck


We play a hip-hop song and suddenly 25 people on the left jump up and put their hands in the air; then you play Lost Cause and they're like, I don't know about this one.
Quotation of Beck


When I was making my four track tapes, I would make a bunch of cassette copies and take them down to the show that night and sell them. I'd maybe sell three copies, but you had that instantaneous feeling.
Quotation of Beck


When it comes time to sing the vocal, I'll work on that for a while. I just mess with the songs. I'll sometimes write three or four songs over the drums and the bassline.

Quotation of Beck
