Virginia Aurora Scott 2012
At the heart of music is improvisation. Improvisation in performance creating sound images.
It is extended in meaningful ways when two are contributing….interaction, spontaeneously developing sonic light and shade, freely, dynamically articulating the language of the piano, and exploring all possible textures of the moment. Skill, temperament, openess, listening, ebbing and flowing to shape time and space. Noise, silence, gesture, abstraction, physically approaching an intention, affirming the presence of sound, shifting restlessly, relentlessly through the crenilations of possibilites. A sound, a silence, a pitch, a rhythm, wood, felt and strings, forming a strange subliminal sojourn in a world of aural tectonics. We pause, we play and we live though a moment inside the energy of sound. We leave a trace in time, a whisper in the ear of now.
