What's on your mind now?
« on: March 31, 2005, 01:26:03 AM »
Like the "What are you listening to right now" thread...

What's the most pressing concern on your mind at the moment?

Things you are working on now, things you "must remember to do today or this week,"  etc.  not necessarily piano.

I don't have any "pressing concerns" as such - usually avoid them. I'm wondering whether I shall finish the last inch or so of brandy in the bottle at home tonight but I've more or less decided I can't be bothered. I was toying with the idea of exercising again tonight but as I trained the last two nights I can't be bothered with that either. I was wondering about calling into the shops on the way home but I can't be bothered with that. No good thinking about what to play tonight because the piano's action is still away being rebuilt. Could continue with the algorithmic composition programme I suppose but on the other hand I might not bother.

Perhaps I shall post again when I have a pressing thought, but that doesn't happen very often.

I am sweating the deadline of having the Ballade #1, Mozart's 576, and the Appassionata all memorized and down pat in time to do a piano festival in Italy in June.  OK, so I am not one of the recitalists, but I still have to play them for other pianists, so I don't want to look like  twit.  I am twitching because I just got asked to do a Piano and 9 other instruments thing in a month.  I am trying to figure out how I can do it all.  egad!

I'm wondering if my parents actually are going to buy my that new PC I've been heavily coveting this Friday or Saturday.

And, not any kind of thinking issue or anything, but currently I'm just amazed by how gigantic an orchestra Havergal Brian's Symphony No. 1, "Gothic," calls for. Why would anyone need 6 flutes!!! On top of calling the largest orchestral force, it's also the longest symphony, clocking in about 10 minutes short of 2 hours. There are probably longer ones, like Sorabji's Jami Symphony, whose scores scans nearly a thousand pages. But it can be discounted, as a performance has yet to see the light of day.

Yes, I do play to play, at least to a degree, and certainly with regard to improvisation. The physical act of playing is part of the yoga of music for me. I do not mean that I could not express something musical without it, only that for me the end and the means tend to be mixed up.

Goes to show how remarkable the human brain is to be able to conceive a meaning for "eternity". I wonder if the higher primates can perceive a glimmering notion of eternity. In fact there are numerous meanings of the word, ranging from the abstract idea of mathematical infinity applied to time to a subjective and indefinite perpetuation of consciousness.

The goal in playing the piano (and any instrument for that matter) is not actually about playing the piano.  It is about playing pieces/music.

We play music to express that which cannot be expressed through words or pictures.

We play the piano to know music. 

I believe it is much bigger than that.  We play the piano to know ourselves!

so many thoughts flit through randomly.  where should i start?  suspecting the neighbors to have taken my precious watering can (or did it blow away in the wind - being plastic)?  why is there grass in the mailbox (did my three year old do this?)  why do the neighbors lawns grow so green, and mine has to be coaxed and prodded along with tons of water, etc.  did i put too much lime in last year?  how come the only thing i can grow from seed is sunflowers?  (looking at thumb). 
do you know why benches fall apart?  it is because they have lids with little tiny hinges so you can store music inside them.  hint:  buy a bench that does not hinge.  buy it for sturdiness.
