Okay, this is what happens. i get totally busy, can’t really focus, continue to practice the piece – with limited results – can kind of tell what it is missing but can’t tell exactly what that is. round and round i go with it and am perpetually frustrated until i actually get some time to focus. usually this means alone in the house on a weekday.
so i went back and listened to some of the practice recordings and came across an ending to the piece that i just improvised and it kind of stuck with me. i lengthened the phrase and came up with this bit that feels like the ending to me. however, i have no idea how it is going to transition from what i have to this:
i say i don’t know but i kind of do know. but it is still out of focus and conceptual. by this i mean i know how i want it to feel but i don’t know how to express it. so it is just going to take some more time and energy – both of which are in short supply – and get over that i’m not finished yet.
till next time, cheers, timothy
