The New Video Series Episode 8
Hello Everyone…Episode 8! I’ve realized recently (or am realizing) how much and where in my body I hold tension when I perform. There is of course the energy required to maintain proper body alignment and channel movement, then there is the “extra” born from habitual anxiety over the exertion. I conceptualize and experience it as a kind of “physical static”. (I must have heard that term somewhere.) I am using a piece I’ll be performing soon with a friend (Hi Tracy Ensley), Mozart’s Duo for Violin and Viola in B-flat, to practice a meditation technique for regulating and dissipating that static. Hence the subtitle, “ Internal Work”.
