Before delving too deeply into the physical nature of my music it will be helpful to
first make clear my views on the performer and the various physical demands asked of him
In my view the role of the interpreter is something to be considered very critically.
His approach to music is grounded in tradition and he sees himself as advancing music along an established path. This approach gives the performer greater capacity to create meaningful interpretations because they have something on which to fall back.
Room for interpretation is reduced dramatically when music leaves the performer to his or her own devices and forces independent creation of form. This happens when, instead of having a rich collection of musical ideas that relate to a piece, performers are forced to decipher various
symbols and improvise from a limited set of musical ideas.
