Read online:

“Butter Cow” features a “gentle, buttery clarinet melody,” said Hamlin, who often interviewed the late butter sculptor Norma Lyon in her chilled studio. “I’d watch her hands and her tools go over the butter, and there was just this total smoothness, without any seams anywhere.”

He associates butter with the clarinet because it’s mellow — unlike the brighter, more penetrating sound of an oboe.

“An oboe is olive oil with lemon in it,” he said. “A really bad synthesizer is margarine.”

I read these words and more from Peter Hamlin here. 🙂
