Music from Somewhere

It is all improvised and it is all composed -Bob Ostertag


The way I approach playing is related more to speaking in tongues or taking a walk in the woods than trying to recover a certain behavior. Perhaps this is because my education was in the sciences and I took music as either a model or an extension of the natural. The desire to be able to do something well, something I have tried before, is there but this doesn’t seem to be the big issue. There is just something else I want to do. I believe strongly that music is as much uncovered as made up. I still have the certainty that like nature, it reveals itself to us though our probing. Electronic music, with all its novelty, is not something we invent out of nothing.
