Box Set began with a notebook full of titles for unwritten stories and unmade films that I have been collecting for years. These titles started arranging themselves into groups of ten, which reminded me of track listings on record albums. I quickly realized that I was writing a book and used the constraints of the record album to explore that form’s narrative possibilities. Song titles had to sound plausible; their ordering – in combination with liner notes, spine text, and album graphics – was put in service of a very economical form of storytelling that ended up being about boxes, real and imagined, and the possible music they might contain.
