#Quote
1With 'Philharmonics,' I had to do a lot of interviews, and it was like I was corrupting something. In many ways, I've said everything in the song. And either I can't go back to what it was because it's changing when I play it, or I still haven't figured out what the song is about.
2What I discovered in Berlin was this immense freedom because it felt like you could start any kind of project and nobody would care... and that's what I sort of adopted to my own.
3I used to get very nervous before a concert. It's okay when you are in a band. You can kind of disappear. But when it's just you... yes, that was difficult. I would not say it is easy now. But when you do it for a long time, you do learn to cope.
4Everything that has a spare piano is 'like Satie' and everything with strings is 'filmic,' Sometimes I get annoyed when they say my stuff sounds 'like Satie'. No, it doesn't. At least, I don't think so.
5I have a difficult relationship with jazz. My parents really love it, and I went to a school where jazz was considered the best thing ever, so I had to leave it be for a long time. But now I'm rediscovering it. I'm approaching jazz in a different way.
6The orchestral or symphonic music never interested me.
7When I was in bands, I always liked the demo best.
8It's always difficult to know if a song needs more than piano, and I worry about my tendency to go in a sparse direction.
9I'm not into having a pedigree dog.
10I wish my parents had been more strict and made me learn more instruments.
11My mum is a big collector of art.
12My parents were very relaxed about music.
13I don't have a classical-music mentality. I haven't been taught that way, and it doesn't fit my character, either.
14I'm very happy that I got introduced to music only as something you got pleasure from.
15I don't have a daily routine at all.
16I've heard from other artists that people are a little bit more reserved in Northern Europe, which comes across at concerts, where the audience may be quieter. So this means less hecklers, but maybe it also means that people may not be as open about how they felt. I'm not so sure this is especially true of Denmark, but it's what I've heard.
17The piano and the singing are two equal things to me - maybe not inseparable but very connected. You can say they are like two equal voices.
18I don't have the feeling of being motivated by anger, revenge or frustration.
19I love the conversation between film and music.
20Even though music is something I travel around doing, it is also a very private thing. A sort of escapism.
21Sometimes I feel like a melody doesn't have anything to do with me, but it's just something that comes, is accumulated from me playing on the piano, and then this little creature just appears.
22I learned that music should be fun and should be a way to express yourself - that there aren't really any rules.
23I really believe it's not bad to look back within music. I don't mean retro, but using your own memories to make a song because our memories are what make us who we are.
24The best thing about Berlin was that I got to be surrounded by people who pursue their ideas for themselves.
25I love Denmark. But it is a very safe place, and it is easy to let the state look after everything for you.
26Feelings such as loneliness, longing or love are sometimes hard to put into words; maybe that's why we all love music, because it resonates with something we can't share.
27When I started working on my own music, I didn't have the chance to record in a big music studio, so I had to record everything myself.
