“We tolerate differences of opinion in people who are familiar to us. But differences of opinion in people we do not know sound like heresy or plots.”

Brooks Atkinson

“It sounds otherworldly and mysterious, submerged under a bed of spacious texture. A place of awe where don’t have answers to all of your questions.”

Brooke Waggoner

“When people tell you they saw your last picture – well, the way they say it sounds like they hope it was.”

 

Broderick Crawford

“It may sound lame, but I’ve been journaling since I was in third grade. I love it! It makes me feel calm and happy.”

 

Brittany Snow

“You always want an album to sound like its own little planet.”

 

Britta Phillips

“It’s not about how loud you turn the amp up. That’s not what makes it sound big. What makes it sound big is fooling around with different delays and reverb settings.”

 

Brian Setzer

“I wanted to use the studio like a microscope for sound, which is what good engineers do.”

 

Brian Eno

“Most big concerts sound disgusting and awful and insultingly bad. It’s like going to the cinema and been shown a scratchy film which is upsidedown and the bulb had gone on the projector. The quality of large-scale live music is so shocking.”

 

Brian Eno

“I enjoy working with complicated equipment. A lot of my things started just with a rhythm box, but I feed it through so many things that what comes out sounds very complex and rich.”

 

Brian Eno

“For me it’s always contingent on getting a sound-the sound always suggests what kind of melody it should be. So it’s always sound first and then the line afterwards.”

 

Brian Eno

“Often, I think you find that you’re enjoying certain things, you’ve got this new way of listening, and you find that you really enjoy the way that sounds on it and the way this other thing sounds on it and the way that other thing sounds on it. So, you’re finding a new pleasure that you didn’t know about before.”

 

Brian Eno

“If I had a stock of fabulous sounds I would just always use them. I wouldn’t bother to find new ones.”

 

Brian Eno

“There are certain sounds that I’ve found work well in nearly any context. Their function is not so much musical as spatial: they define the edges of the territory of the music.”

 

Brian Eno

“As soon as I hear a sound, it always suggests a mood to me.”

 

Brian Eno

“I take sounds and change them into words.”

 

Brian Eno

“You can hear the profile of a sound, in retrospect, so much more clearly than you did at the time. And I think one of the things that’s going to be nauseatingly characteristic about so much music of now is its glossy production values and its griddedness, the tightness of the way everything is locked together.”

 

Brian Eno

“That’s why I started amplifying my voice at all, to capture the little sounds I make when I am pushing my body physically, drumming away.”

 

Brian Chippendale

“I think alot of vocalists believe in the sound, or the way they sing it – it’s interchangable.”

 

Brian Chippendale

“A lot of bands are still just bands that artists ask to get involved, but a lot of artists are using sound they create. This is different from referencing music.”

 

Brian Chippendale

“I don’t like people feeling like they’ve been cheated out of their money, and I too have been caught in the back of floor shows, only to inspect the backs of necks and the mudded sounds pushing though bodies.”
