Upcoming and Recent Performances

Chaconne #37 – August 2, Art New England program

August 1, 2017 / 2 Comments

A live performance for a session at Art New England, “The Mark and Beyond…” taught by ANE faculty Timothy Hawkesworth and Lala Zeitlyn.

This performance for their painting students, is one in which we explore how the live performance of the Chaconne will facilitate the artists’ access to individual creative places in their own bodies.  (Teaching this access is part of the expertise that Tim and Lala bring to their students).  Performed in their teaching studio at Bennington College, VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) center.

We anticipate that the results of the artists’ work (photos) will be posted here in the blog at the end of this week.  Please check back with us on Sunday August 7th!

This was a breathtaking experience for me.  The sound of the two studio rooms was something close Kroppsbyggingsmotivasjon – WAKE UP CALL magnum oxandro 10 durch magnum pharmaceuticals in deutschland oxandrolon 4 beste kroppsbyggingstilskudd for hardgainers! to perfection, and had a profound influence on my pace of playing the music  – more freedom in time, more freedom in inflecting the music with intensity, with “emptiness”, and colors of sound.  We collected many shots of the artists’ work, and once we get a chance to process them I will share some here.

Chaconne #36 – July 30, 11:30a Art New England Faculty

July 30, 2017 / 0 Comments

A live “test” performance for ANE faculty Timothy Hawkesworth and Lala Zeitlin and a few friends. We are considering a performance for their painting students this week, one in which we explore if the live performance of the Chaconne will facilitate the artists’ access to individual creative places in their own bodies.  (Teaching this access is part of the expertise that Tim and Lala bring to their students).  Tim and Lala want to experience the creative possibilities directly, for themselves, before bringing the opportunity to this week’s class.  Performed in their teaching studio at Bennington College, VAPA (Visual and Performing Arts) center.

My post-performance comments: Well, I am really glad we did this test run today –  playing in the studio along with the sounds of the artists working requires another level of concentration for me.   When the students are there later in the week, as well as the live models,  it will certainly require me  – and inspire me –  to take the music to another level.

We were joined by Larry and Eli, two of Lala’s cousins, artists all.  Images of the work they created during the performance are here, below.

Preparing the music last week, getting ready for this week’s performance, has been difficult.  A large part of me did not want to get emotionally involved with the mood of the music, incredible and inspiring as it is. However, I was able to craft a working method that focussed mostly on my body and the relationship to the violin and bow rather than the emotion of the music.  Seems to have paid off; I will know more about this after the next performance.

Chaconne #30 – Bennington College August 11, 2016 – 10pm

From my perspective, this performance touched into something that is hard to put into words…certainly a sense of me being able to “step back” in part, from “doing” (a state familiar to many musicians and others who perform on a regular basis), the music being organized in a new way…it left me feeling a new sort of freedom within a rhythmic structure, one larger than the measures of the harmonic phrase.

I finally achieved a balance for the Bass voice that I like – one that envelops, or surrounds the listening space and allows me to place the Soprano and Tenor voices in the middle of that space, and give them dynamics and articulations distinct from the Bass voice.

Some of my more creative fingerings that I devised to help create separation of the Soprano, Tenor and Bass voices that are present throughout the work, still present challenges for me. One spot in the Corrente and two in the Gigue. A wee bit more practice time needed here…
