Editor's Info:
"the creative musician delivers an expression or musical thought at the very instant that the idea is [inspired] conceived. the artist must have the ability to instantaneously organize sound, silence and rhythm into structure and form with the whole of his or [and] her creative intelligence."
"the total life experience is drawn from including the faculties of right reasoning and the make-up of the artist´s psychological and physiological profile."
"all of these factors will determine what is actually being expressed at the moment of [inspiration]conception/and creating."
From notes (8 pieces): source a new world music: creative music, 1973, New Haven, CT.
Inspiration is the event of authenticity, which brings an influx of new information and creates new memory. It is a solitary moment that exists prior to creating a musical work or an art-object. It occurs before the artist begins to think about or reflect on the essential elements of a new work.
It´s a moment that is a quiet fire, filled with an energetic spark that lights up a ritualistic space that might be imaged as a thin layer of particles touching the core of creation where within a split second the artist experiences a fresh acquisition of new information which must be transferred into an art-object.
Inspirational energy carries no weight nor reveals any resistant motion.
Before the artist is inspired that moment is already present inside of him and her and it is felt and known. Otherwise, there can be no artist or art.
What is that and where does it come from?
It´s the untraceable unseen inspiration recognized as coming from everywhere and from within everything that is known and unknown.
It´s the seed and sight of pure awareness experienced and realized without interference.
Inspiration is close to light in nature but different, the former being the "object" discovered and the latter being the light that exposes the "object."
It´s a pure seed, a splendor of awareness experienced and realized directly and only witnessed by the person in the present moment.
In creative art making and other performative art activities, the Inspirational moment is unique. It brings a code of new information, and a dream/discovery energy at play.
The artist engraves with that inspired material which is essential to the art-object and its vitality as a work of art.
Next, transferring that energy into a creative form.
And the practice and shaping of the information into an art-object.
Afterwards conditioning the score for public exhibition through preparation, an individual act, rehearsal, the re-hearing and putting into place the musical properties as conceived; and the performance and recording.
These stages are defined as reflection, meditation, research-based and realization.
Think of the art-object and ensemble as performance.
All art practices are performative.
Writing, painting, oratory, dancing, composing/performing and listening.
