The 6ths – A Sailor In Love With The Sea

Reminds me of New York in spring, and the jukebox at Dicks Bar way before it closed down...

 

My Robot Friend (with Antony) – One More Try

 

Two artists I love and one amazing song - I remember teaching Howie how to carve stone in my studio on 14th street in 1995 and am proud he is a robot now.

 
Orange Juice – Rip It Up  

Because I never would have imagined my early self meeting my grown self in Glasgow where all the music I loved then and still do now is from.

A Tribe Called Quest – Can I Kick It

 

It is a total classic.

 

Patti Smith – Kimberly

Breaks my heart and makes me think of my sisters.

 
Corner Tour – Fuckemos (do you wanna dance)  

This song is in my sister Samara's beautiful film Tumbleweed Town and I could listen to it a million times over.

 
Olof Arnalds – I Nyju Husi  

I listened to this song on repeat every day when I was working in Iceland at the Blue Lagoon, forming geothermal sculptures.

 
Glenn Gould – Aria – Goldberg Variations 1955 version  

I have a physical response to this piece, my chest opens and my shoulders come down.

 

John Cage – Harmony of Maine No. 3, Harmony in C.M.

 

We have gone to the coast of Maine since I was a 11, and when the fog comes in and rolls out again it feels life this.

 
Woody Allen – Mechanical Objects  

It reminds me of my whole family, everyone I grew up with and morning coffee at Zabars.
