Sufjan speaks

He's starting to get "sick of his conceptual ideas" and wondering what it's all about. Was that "album for every state" idea conceived in a bar? (Vish Khanna)

I really work on a very microscopic level. I really think in terms of the song or folk song, and I work within a very conservative frame of melody, accompaniment, and narrative. So really basic, simple forms, and they just end up becoming hybrids or amended or expanded to form greater, epic, set pieces.
