for Visual Music Artists, Writers, and Venues
This is another sketch prompted by the impact its music had on me.
"Sketching" is for me like a liberation, a form of daily breathing (and breathing "right" at that), not trying to make "finished/polished pieces," not making anything "special," just getting involved with something that moves me, serving it as best I can, without turning the experience into a "do or die" ordeal or a bout of "techno-plumbing.".
"Just sketching while hearing with my eyes..."
Alberto Caeiro/Fernando Pessoa (http://alberto-caeiro.blogspot.ca/) said something that conveys what I am trying to say:
I don’t bother with rhyme. Rarely
Are two trees the same, one beside the other.
I think and write like flowers have color
But with less perfection in my way of expressing myself
Because I lack the divine simplicity
Of wholly being only my exterior.
I see and I’m moved,
Moved the way water runs when the ground is sloping
And what I write is as natural as the rising wind...
The music is by Dietrich Buxtehude, the Alleluia of his BuxWV 15 cantata.
