Moby makes sure he’s ready when inspiration strikes.
Moby: The one thing I’m doing when inspiration hits is I’m sitting in my studio playing guitar or playing keyboards or sitting in front of the computer. But as long as I’m there, that way I can capture it and I can document it. And it becomes sort of almost like an ascetic, monastic vocation. You know? Like it’s just me alone in my small studio, which is sort of like a monastic cell. And I at some point . . . I mean, they’ll do document . . . documentaries on musicians. Like a behind the music on the dramatic things that are involved in making a record. And for me it would be the most tedious documentary in the world because it’s just me sitting in a chair in front of a computer or in front of a keyboard, and there’s really not a lot going on.
