Sam Shepherd (Floating Points): Pharoah... 

Pharoah Sanders: Huh...? 

Sam: Were you asleep? I'm sorry... 

Pharoah: No no... I was listening... and dreaming... and listening to music in my head... 

Sam: Oh wow... sorry. 

Pharoah: Many times, people think I might be asleep... but in fact, I am just listening to music in my head. I'm always listening... to the sounds around me... and playing, in my mind... and sometimes I dream. 

Sam: What were you dreaming about? 

Pharoah: I'm on a ship. In the ocean. Bears coming around smoking cigars. The bears are singing, ‘We have the music. We have what you're looking for.’ I say, ‘Really?’ And I was making fish dinners. Shark..Lobster. Got all kinds of fish. And you know, a good pie. Pumpkin pie. You like pumpkin pie? 

Pharoah: How you like that take, Sam? 

Sam: It's cool. I think the bit in the middle, where it stops again...I think you can hear...We were both kind of confused. I like it as well because it sounds like two musicians that are trying to guide each other. 

Pharoah: I think that's it right there. It came out different. It came out good though. 

Sam: You happy? 

Pharoah: Yeah, I'm cool with it. 

Sam: Okay. Yeah, I think you're playing is beautiful.
