Oh Yeah - Remember...
Went to a show Monday night - saw Brian Crabtree and Kelli Cain (Monome), and got a great reminder of something: playing is lovely. Since I've moved to Minnesota, my playing opportunities have been greatly limited - and I've not been pushing it, either. Going to MCAD and seeing my friend play helped me remember that you don't have to put on a Rush-level show to honor the audience, honor music and enjoy making some noises.
It was beautiful, and also a reminder that modulars, monomes, norns and other stuff can be used to make all sorts of music. You can make crunchy beats, but you can also make beautiful synthetic sounds - or even sing a little.
If you have a chance to see Brian and Kelli play, do yourselves that favor.
