“To starve the egotistical self & to feed the creative self.”
To have the ability to let the music breathe and to live. Not to show off the ability that you amassed over years, but to balance the song and guide it to a place where the egotistical will never visit.
Ego says let me be heard. The true musician says how can I contribute to this painting.
At this performance I saw love in her eyes, she was completely besotted by the rhythm of her husband, she would nod and agree with every note he played. She would look quizzically as he moved from mode to mode only to arrive home, with all questions answered.
I saw what I had always wanted, music without ego, to further no ones cause but the music itself.
On Saturday night I fell in love with a performance.Written 1 year ago
