about

here is some new music of mine, “out today”, all of it here on bandcamp and at my Instagram page @leave__on , other platforms to come…

i am grateful for the means to share it — less for the particular technology to blast, and more generally for public social life, whatever frames and stages any era might allow. i am increasingly perplexed by my own performative impulse, as it is obvious to me how much i get out of the endless private practice alone.

grateful for anyone who chooses to listen, and of course hoping it resonates with some… i’m always glad at what seems the mutual benefit when that happens. but it’s not like i think myself charitable if&when it does. it’s validation or relief or whatever else. i do it for myself, first and foremost.

i think everyone must really be doing it for themselves first, whether or not they’d agree. i think so, because i believe everyone deserves to have a creative practice. and then the self-consciousness that comes with performance through occupying it’s moment, or with publication by anticipating it’s moment, drastically alters the practice and so remains an essential part of it’s potentiality — changing the natures of the maker and the making. for some it’s closure, for some it’s authenticity, for some it’s pressure. for everyone it’s something.

far as i can tell, being an audience for others is the public service, not artistry. for everyone to be fully humanly creatively enabled, everyone’s practice benefits from some outside attention. i nurse growing conflicts about professionalized art, so this music is free. if you get something out of it too, it doesn’t suddenly make my practice selfless.

listening is work, watching is work, witness is work. and then there’s all of recorded history too. i aspire to listen to others in gratitude for having been listened to. so yeah, this music was and is no doubt for me myself. a self-oriented act in support of our collective self-oriented acts and reflexive listening out and back. here it is.
