From the interview:

I am convinced that a lot of us are in fact very musical, we just need to make the instruments easy enough for people to play without requiring years of training, so that people can focus on the making of music.

I found Tonematrix extremely addictive. I have no musical training, don't play an instrument, and that thing made me feel like a genius. (Thank god I don't own an iPhone if there's an app for that now; I'd never get any work done.)

Ha! Samson's a friend of mine! He has very cool angular hair.
