If only I had more time for this CEP. If only I had 6 more months to practice and evolve into this ‘machine’ I keep researching about. I spent 5 1/2 weeks in a room for 10 hours a day and maybe I only scratched the surface?…
I have been avoiding this issue for 2 weeks now, but really I should embrace it. The reason for this is that I HAVE evolved. My out-look on this context is 100% more efficient, educated and crafted than before I began. I started as a ‘player of drums’ and I am now a Player Of Drums. I am full of things to say about this project, the most important being the experience of it all, and the excitement of finally being a musician who understands what must be done.
Today I made completed the first 7 pages of my documentation. This is 1 section of my portfolio and it ties in the meeting I had with the world-leading Arup Group in London. This meeting was inspirational to me, as it taught me so much about the effect sound has on practice. I was lucky enough to meet with an accomplished acoustic engineer who guided me through the importance of acoustics in sound and outcome. If only pall practitioners were aware of these issues and how to solve them, it would open up the practice session in a whole new light.
This section of my project is entitled ‘sound in practice’ and promises to be the first of several sections to make up my final portfolio of this study, which will be on sale from the 2nd of january on www.howtopracticelikeamachineandnotsoundlikeawankyartist.com…maybe I’m joking.or not?
