One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Crisp Non-lingering

Some guitarists seek infinite sustain to fill all space, not realizing as tasteless musicians that this chokes everything, and though this spotlighting might be best for grabbing the attention of prospective groupies, it makes for terrible music.

Gaps allow pulse, and silence puts dynamics back in play, expanding the available language. Just as words are spaced by breaks, music too must be more than an undifferentiated stream of sounds smashed together.

The rhythm can be unusual sometimes, like that of an individual, rather than a trained clone repeating popular patterns and scripts learned from entertainment.

Rather than lingering, we get in, perform our purpose, and exit cleanly.
