“When I say artist, I mean the man who is building things — creating molding the earth — whether it be the plains of the west — or the iron ore of Penn. It’s all a big game of construction — some with a brush — some with a shovel — some choose a pen.”
— Jackson Pollock

“I chose a shovel… and a hard drive. What I got was some sketches I made back in 2007, while constructing my first release, ‘Hipcycle’. There’s nothing fancy about these pieces, but when I found them buried under tons of megabytes, I thought they were kind of important to me, since I was setting up my own style then, and curiously enough I still use some of those pieces in completely new works. I believe it was my musical adolescence I keep returning to.”
— Cycle Hiccups

“Some specialists find that the difficulties of adolescence have been exaggerated and that for many adolescents the process of maturation is largely peaceful and untroubled.”
— Encyclopedia Britannica

“My favorite methods of finding peacefulness and escaping troubles are: putting my feet in a basin with hot water and sleeping without using an alarm clock. Well, yes, making music works as well.”
— Yellowhead

“The arts are … a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake.”
— Kurt Vonnegut

“We can state officially that, in terms of digging, the tunes of Cycle Hiccups get 56 points on our in-house Scale of All Things.”
— 56 Stuff, Department of Digital Archeology

“It’s not where you take things from — it’s where you take them to.”
— Jean-Luc Godard
