Final Note Magazine interview

In this interview in Final Note Magazine, I explain (among other things) the relationship between sports and music: 

"Well, the pressure from either one can make you think that you're going to die. With weightlifting, however, the actual risk of putting more iron than your own bodyweight over your head is ultimately more visceral. Other than that, they both demand absolute discipline, no compromises whatsoever, enormous concentration, and the distillation of everything into one crucial moment where all that you've worked for has to happen, exactly like you planned it."
