"One of the things I've become celebrated for or pilloried for is my desire to write pop melodies, simple pop melodies over complex rhythm or compond time. I like 7/8 a lot, I love 9/8, I like 5/4. And the trick is to make it seem as if nothing's happening - it's just normal. And yet you try and find the beat, you really have to work hard because it keeps tripping over itself."
