-LIVE Perfromence-

Live performance is a difficult think, public interaction in general is kind of tricky. Knowing how much to give, and how people will take it is something that comes over time, and is posibly never really felt at the delivery of action. My last two performances ocupied a space which is somewhat imbedded in this previous statement. they were verry public, yes, but also quite inwardly private. In the bell tree performance my voice, and part of me was forced to interact withh the kids who decided to collabirate and interact over the top of the performance, but i was also thus forced into the background. Voice is something that seems to end up in the background within the enviroments i assume most of us occupy, instramental music (with the inclusion of sunging) can, but is interated a lot as entertainment of sometype, and in a live setting, deffinatly a focus point.

On the radio also, as a matthew mentioned to me; talking going into performance released me from defined end and start points. in the tree this was realised durring the performance by the "interuption" and on the radio it was the start-endlessness. Also on radio, the focus placed on the medium and the posibility of others stubleing along the dial is an important componant. Which reminds me of Simon Denny's Performance i saw in Christchurch the day before my performance , moveing a 4x2 to affect the reception of a small portable radio, something that i have done at home messing about (manually not with a plank, or as a performance). I like to think of my live to air or the first 75 track on "little more" (my new album on sabbathicool) as occupying this space, little blips in itunes random. As parralell universes entering ours to be seen once or zillions of times.

It is somewhat the same in the tree performance, in a some what romantic peter pan type fashion. And all this is of course a reflection of randomness and/or posibility, and the massive beauty of it.
