I am looking forward to re-connecting with this work that I performed last week with the painters in Tim and Lala’s art studio. Tonight is for a few friends, old and new.
Tonite was one of the performances for which I did not specially prepare, as I have been working hard all week for the Conference. My focus was to just let go, and allow the piece to play itself, so to speak. The hall without people is very resonant, and I found myself just allowing the tones to have lots of time, so the rhythmic framework was quite free. I am not sure this is good, nor am I sure it is bad. I also noticed that a few little errors have crept in here and there and they need to be given some “discipline” to get them back in line.
My next step is to find a way to take my playing of the work from where it is now (pretty good) to a much higher level; how to do that is not yet clear to me.
