Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Jan Stevens: It's your use of a flanger
that I want to discuss.
Elle di Elle: What's a flanger?
Jan Stevens: It's an electronic device that
mixes two signals resulting in a phase shift. 
Elle di Elle: You didn't like it?
Jan Stevens: I think it should be on
a lower setting. Just fractionally. 
Elle di Elle: Why?
Jan Stevens: When you alter the sound too
much you lose all connection to the activity. 
Elle di Elle: But that's the whole point of what we do.
Why do it if it remains in the culinary context?
Jan Stevens: And why do it if it's completely
divorced from it? Then it's just sonic without the catering.
Elle di Elle: So you want catering without the sonic?
Jan Stevens: The best collectives here stretched the
elastic of their culinary sounds as far as they could,
but there was always a connection to the source
material. A semblance of what the sound once was. 

A happy 44 to Gwendoline Christie today!
Her performance in this movie is one of the year's greats.
