Project 4 - Excercise

Drinking Piece for Orchestra


I found this exercise to be incredibly meditative. I spent a good thirty minutes on the exercise overall imagining a goldfish swim across the sky and drinking water. I laid down on the flat part of my roof and stared into the sky. I allowed my mind to wander as I was in the act of performing this piece. An onlooker would see me as someone laying on a roof, then drinking water, then laying back down on a roof. Externally this could be perceived as an odd event. Internally I perceived it as a meditation.
