Sometimes I am in an audience and I think I could accompany the person I’m watching/ listening to. Like I could get up and join them unannounced and start playing the piano even though I so not know personally know them. I don’t of course because who knows what they would think. Probably they do not want the stranger to start playing on their song. I played a song at the open stage. I find this song powerful, especially the chorus which I planned on doing uniquely in the upper register of the piano. But when I got to that part the host surprised me by joining in on another microphone. Ruined my plan. Now there was no space to do what I came to do. What can you do but laugh about expecting your work would go a certain way in the big improvisation we already are playing within.
