Matthew Shipp

I have no influences -
I existed together with god
and the piano
before time began.

And my piano playing is the direct result of the fact that my mind and the cosmic mind that sustains the universe are in harmony - so when I play I intercept electro magnetic frequencies directly from the mind of god and can convert them into lyrical phrases on the piano. If at any time it sounds like another pianist its because the universe is one organism and there is one underlining language field so what I articulate on piano can resemble what another part of the one cosmic brain would articulate on the piano.
