DISCOURSE: Seppo and Gensha
‘Ah, not knowing. Very intimate, very intimate indeed.’ When we know, we have the knower and the thing known: that’s two things. In intimacy, there is no knowing. The whole body and mind is involved. It’s not objective; it’s very subjective. There’s no separation.’
A friend of mine referred to Tears in the Rain as being very intimate. I was delighted that he used this word and think that it is very appropriate. I think this music is subjective, un-rehearsed, of-the-moment, deeply personal – and yet maybe exactly because it is so personal it is also universal… I wrote back that I would like the Tears in the Rain music to be intimate and ordinary.
