"Things get bizarre when we leave the studio," Godin says, "that is our normal life. We are not very adaptive. In the studio everything is normal, like a fish in water. Then when we go out it's a nightmare. You have to deal with things. Like here in the US, I have to speak English."
"We are really sensitive to the aggressiveness of the world," Dunckel adds. "In the studio everything is simple and we are productive."
Not content to muse in the present, Godin brings up his childhood, where as John Lennon once sang, "Everything was right." Or maybe not.
"I remember when I first heard 'Peter and the Wolf' in kindergarten," Godin recalls. "I knew then that the instruments in the orchestra were my friends. They were better than human beings. That was magic when I was in class with all these mean kids 'cause kids are f---ing mean. Everybody loves kids but kids are evil. And I have kids! But it's true."
It's true? How can a father say kids are mean? Aren't they the light of his life? "Kids are mean," Godin confirms, his sullen expression unmoving. "Look at them when they play. They are mean to each other. They are full of aggressive behavior. Then I heard 'Peter and the Wolf' and I was saved by the music."
