I wasn’t one to go out and buy a new car and stereo system and expensive clothes. My mom helped keep me grounded.
Film has lost something in the translation to high tech. It’s become so super-real. It’s with digital this and stereo that, and everything’s like a CD.
There are certain things that you can blast through a stereo. You can blast hip-hop. You can blast heavy metal. You can’t blast ‘All Things Considered.’
My first car, I got it in an auction at my temple. It was an ’86 Volvo that I got for 500 bucks, and then wound up throwing $10,000 into the stereo system and put TVs in the foot rests. It was the most ridiculous Volvo you’d ever seen, but I had never had money before and I was out of my mind.
What made me want to play drums in the first place was Led Zeppelin and The Who. My parents had their records, and I grew up listening to them with the stereo cranked.
I begged and begged, and my uncle gave me his old turntables. It was one hi-fi and one old Stereo Lab turntable and a rusty mixer. I was really chuffed. I kept that for five years – that’s where I learned to mix.
There’s a room in my house where my stereo, records, CDs, and books are housed. I spend a lot of time in that room, sitting in my chair beside the fireplace, reading and listening to music. Sometimes I just stand before the shelves and look at my books, because every single one of them means something to me.
When I received my first paycheck from my now known day job, I spent it on a period Craftsman chair and a Frank Lloyd Wright-wannabe lamp. With my second paycheck, I bought a stereo.
I grew up in St. Louis in a tiny house full of large music – Mahalia Jackson and Marian Anderson singing majestically on the stereo, my German-American mother fingering ‘The Lost Chord’ on the piano as golden light sank through trees, my Palestinian father trilling in Arabic in the shower each dawn.

I wanted to play drums, and I got a set when I was 14 and just started to play in the house, to the stereo. I liked Ringo Starr, of course. And Sandy Nelson. I had his record, ‘Let There Be Drums,’ and I’d play along with it.
Here’s something I probably shouldn’t be saying: I never listen to my soundtrack albums because I can’t stand it. It’s just stereo. When I write, I write in surround. My life is in surround.
Somehow, since I became a family, every minute in which I am alone and not listening to two kids screaming in stereo feels like a vacation.
I never got a stereo system until about 1969. It was only when I went to America in ’68 and listened to FM radio; I really thought, ‘Wow, there’s something in this.’
The best place for me is in my car, listening to my stereo. I am ‘Mr. Karaoke Guy’ in the car, completely. I just go with it and don’t care what anyone else thinks – I’m singing, man!
When you listen to stereo on your home system, your both ears hear both speakers. Turn on the left speaker sometime and notice you’re hearing it also in your right ear.
I had my first stereo when I turned 12, and every two weeks, I would save up money and buy one CD.
I had my guitar at the set of ‘Lost in Space’ every day. I was the only one in the cast who had a stereo in his dressing room. So while I was in school or when I was in there working with Dr. Smith and the robot, half the rest of the cast was in my trailer listening to their records that they would bring.
Most people have stereo vision, so why belittle that very, very important element of our existence?
If you’re driving around or at home with the stereo blasting pure dance track, it gets boring within about 15 minutes. It doesn’t work at home like it does in a nightclub. You’ve got no atmosphere.
Nat King Cole’s lyrics were speaking to me, almost like fatherly advice, when I was listening to him alongside the console stereo player. So that music and that influence comes out of me.
Before this DJ thing, I was hopelessly taking things apart to try to figure out how they worked. I’d go mess around with burned-out cars, with my mom’s stereo – I was public enemy #1 in my house for that. So my mom noticed that I was interested in this and decided to send me to school so I’d know what I was doing.
An action film can have too much action; picture an equaliser on a stereo, with all the knobs pegged at 10. It becomes a cacophony and is, ultimately, quite boring.
I also mixed David Bowie’s Young Americans album in 5.1 earlier this year and it will be available very soon. Even the original stereo mixes have been re-mastered and sound amazingly good, better than ever, in fact!
My folks bought a baby grand piano and that’s where I did the majority of figuring out the songs I heard on the stereo.
I was 5 years old when I first broke into my mother’s records and played Nat King Cole, and sat alongside the stereo and listened to Nat’s music.
The worst time for me is in the final few hours of taking a track that you’ve worked on for two years and bouncing it down to the final stereo mix. The overwhelming emotion for me is complete and utter fear that I’ve made a mistake. I’m scared. Afterward, I obsess endlessly about it.
I decided to design and build my own stereo amplifier system at age 13.
For live you need a microphone for the snare and the high hat, the kick drum, a nice stereo overhead and one for the toms – you can get away with using four mikes.
I was a kid who was born and raised on Johnny Cash. My father played ‘At Folsom Prison’ constantly. Cash was the only thing I remember coming from our big, warm stereo console. Even then, I knew Cash was uncool. I knew he was an unhip Republican.
I grew up watching Gregory Hines banging out rhythms like drum beats, and Jimmy Slyde dancing these melodies, you know, bop-bah-be-do-bap, not just tap-tap-tap. Everyone else was dancing in monotone, but I could hear the hoofers in stereo, and they influenced me to have this musical approach towards tap.
Sometimes in films it’s nice to have violins on either side, rather than on one side, so you’ve got more of a stereo picture with the violins. Sometimes it’s good to have the basses in the middle.
Your head is a stereo input. The density and cartilage of your ears embed certain extra characteristics into stereo sound sources. Your brain decodes that and gives you sound plus conscious directions.
I listen to KCRW in the car and Pandora radio, which I stream through the stereo from my iPhone. I’ve been listening to everything from Caribou to Conway Twitty. If I’m going on a longer car ride, I’ll download some podcasts.
