Mastery of the body can lead to virtuosity, but that can take a lifetime. And we must imperfectly communicate and express our feelings as we move along the path. Our limits reveal our shape. Technology can bridge the gap between mind and body, an idea and its realization, in performance and the production of artifacts. Sometimes, our bodies are all the technology that is required. Sometimes we need more.
I have always attempted to allow intuition and a feeling to guide my work, even when I have introduced technical and conceptual obstacles to be overcome and employed. I feel that my most relatable and musically successful endeavors are the ones that seem to emanate fully formed and with no effort. Still, I am committed to the practice. And the letting go. "
