"I was just reading a quote by Neil Gaiman about creativity: "Saying that there are enough writers out there, enough directors out there, enough people with points of view, well, yeah, there are. But none of them are you, And none of those people are going to make the art that you are going to make. None of them are going to change people and change the world in the way that you could change it." It's a great quote. But Peck says the same thing far more eloquently (and without words)"

"I say all this in introduction to the new electronica album by dep — a recent Asheville transplant — because his Start Loving Robots runs the risk of being misfiled. Is it techno? There are those cool, mechanical beats, but this certainly isn't dance music. Is it classical? Well, from the first notes it's obviously not, but the composition and structure suggests music intended for an orchestra and then performed on synthesizers and loops."
