Giving life to music

One of the interesting features of being a composer-performer (playing your own works) is that you can always change and vary, add and remove something from your works – play them differently without being afraid of criticism.

Actually, these days it seems to me pretty ridiculous of writing something down, creating really precise notes and freezing all that on a paper. A piece of music locked in the boundaries, all decided and imprisoned; always played in a same way with same amount of notes, same progressions and rhythms… Seems boring, rude and unfair towards the Nature.

On the other hand, improvising over a nice chord progression, making variations on a melody every time when performing it, playing with rhythms – it feels like an ultimate truth. Isn’t it the way in which life is given to the music and it becomes alive and God is expressed through it?
