Day Sixty Five

Tonight I went along to a performance by one of my all-time heroes, Swiss percussionist Fritz Hauser. The way he approaches music and minimalism have really shaped my own perceptions of sound over the years, and tonights Schraffur didn't disappoint. I feel like what I attempt to do with digital effects, Fritz achieves, seemingly effortlessly, with time, sensitivity and incredible technique; his solo gong performance made the Recital Centre Salon sing.

I've tried to make my Adelaide vacuum cleaners sing too, with a little help from the mystery bird outside my kitchen window, who often calls but has yet to reveal itself...
