Terry Gross asks about his "Zen approach" in the studio (NPR interview) Burnett said: I try not to touch the thing, I have to say. There was a time when I started out making records, producing music, that I wanted to control everything. I wrote arrangements out, and I wanted the drummer to play all the beats and the fills that I imagined hearing. After a few months or years of that, I got tired of it and realized that I was always more excited by other people's ideas than my own. My method in going into the studio is to do as little as possible, just to show up and to listen hard -- until it sounds great.
