Like being so immersed in music that you can’t tell if you are listening or playing!
Yes, that is a wonderful experience. I think that it is the reason musicians do what they do… to get into that zone, that flow. In that zone one is gazing instead of staring, one is aware instead of concentrating. If one starts to concentrate – on listening, or on the melody, or any one of the million facets of the crystal – it all falls apart. A very elaborate cardhouse. A multi-faceted crystal or diamond. And when the piece is played and done with, one can’t remember why or how it happened.
Thankfully we had quite a few moments like that during this last tour. Delicious.
