As One

As a musician, I have learned to collaborate with other musicians in making music together. This is not a simple thing. When I perform by myself, I have the freedom to express the music in a very personal way. As soon as another musician is added, we work as a team. But this team may not work the way we hope unless we learn to create music “as one.” This teamwork may never happen, just as two people may never become close friends, but when it does happen it can be an amazing experience. It can also be a wonderful thing to listen and watch as others “become one” together with the music. That’s how I feel while watching the two musicians in the following link. What joy they seem to share as they dance and create music together. And most striking for me is how the string bass sings so musically! Thank you to my friend for sharing this beautiful experience.
