FROM THE LINER NOTES
Music comes from a thoughtless place. Being able to play music and not have the mind interfere allows music to flow into this world from emptiness. To be able to tap into that emptiness one should learn how to let go of controlling the music, stop attempting or forcing to create something. Letting go is a very important part of the evolution of consciousness. Now that I look back, I can see that this concert was a milestone, where I began experiencing that very “letting go”; it’s something I can now see in all aspects of life, of the world surrounding me. “Letting go” works equally well for performer and listener. They both have opportunities to perceive music free of judgments, labels, evaluations, dislikes and likes. With such thoughts I present to your attention this album.
