19. Have you ever had auditory hallucinations?
After a long studio session working with headphones all night. I was sitting on the bed in my hotel room. Suddenly I heard grumpy old men passing by. Talking in unknown languages. After a while the scene changed and I heard an opera choir. But it sounded like they had taken drugs and were driving 300 miles per hour. Very fast and crazy compositions. Like sitting in an acoustic rollercoaster. It had nothing to do with the music I made before which was very minimal and electronic. After a while I started to ignore the choir and fell asleep. In the morning the hallucinations were gone and never came back.

20. How would you like to die?
Bitten by a vampire !
