It’d now been a full month of my project. Only 11 to go! I’ve managed to do something performance related every day, whether it’s a rehearsal, true performance, teaching, or whatever. So far, taking the mentality of “performing” into every situation has helped me develop as a player.
I haven’t composed in a while. I wonder if this is considered performing, except very slowly. I suppose every composition is conceived to be performed, and is run through in the composer’s head. This seems to me to be the biggest difference between a performance and a creation of music. I’m really glad, as an improviser, to be able to do both simultaneously sometimes.
Tonight I’m performing with the RSO. Should be fun!
