Today was Men’s day. I decided to re-conceive a piece I had worked on years ago and give it to the men. I decided this yesterday. And the idea for it came to me yesterday, too. One of the most difficult exercises is re-inventing your own work. But it can be a great reminder that there are always many, many possibilities and potential outcomes. There is no right or wrong way to interpret music and it can be a great challenge to reinterpret a theme in a whole new way. It’s a funny piece. Or at least I hope it’s funny. At any rate, It’s been so incredible to just be able to follow my impulses. To create with abandon. Would I love the number to work like a charm? Sure! Would I love every number I do to work like a charm? Absolutely! But it’s so liberating to know that they don’t really have to. That weather they “work” or not has little to do with my experience creating them. And because of that, I find myself wanted to create even more… and take more risks. That’s what the Lab is all about and today, I was so grateful for it.
