...:::...perhaps it is because life can move so fast and be full of so much, that i am drawn to a more paired down sound to accompany me along my way. perhaps through association, these drawn out sounds help to reduce the excess in my everyday.

i have been thinking lately that there is an interesting relationship between ‘minimalism’ and ‘reductionism’. maybe the difference is in the actual making…where minimal is perhaps about creating through a simple addition and reduction is creating through subtraction? but while the end products of the two can become synonymous, they do not always have to be. it depends on a critical stopping point…in knowing that to add anything more will drown it in clutter or that to take anything more away will leave it hollow and dull…

but what i like thinking about the most is that moment of interface between minimalism and reductionism. it happens at a certain crux point, where they begin to look at one another…exchange glances…still adding, still subtracting...still constructing until they are eye-locked and staring…until grams of thought have been satisfactorily layered up and stripped away…until there is balanced some magnificent form that would lose all its beauty if tipped in either direction. slippery, beauty is...

i find these moments from time to time...poised on my tip-toes (sun-washed on a cloudy day) before i wobble and fall and begin to construct another one in another way for another day…:::...
