Lazy Sunday

Doing this blog is most interesting when I don't feel like it (but things that you only do when you're 'in the mood' tend not to be sustainable!). Under the circumstances, I can always do something: in this case, something between an exercise (pentatonic scales in left hand) and something very abstract. The abstract aspect of this interests me a lot at the moment: it's ultra-personal, an extension of yesterday's visceral romanticism; it comes directly from and speaks directly to the body (Locke!). Is there a difference between 'personal' and public 'music'?: the difference between Schoenberg and Palastrina, perhaps...
