Thanks to Paul for emailing me the the link to this interview:
It all started in Budapest. I was on a castle imagining how great it would be to be a pigeon, to experience that place as a pigeon would. That really opened up a lot of other possibilities instantly, it was a great moment, and the whole album was really born out of that moment and that moment falling apart. Of course I had to come home to Winnipeg to start on it, which I did as soon as I got home.
