Week 49. With this week's music I really feel as if I have come full circle and finished the project. That is what this piece says to me, the trouble is of course that it is only week 49. I have no idea why it makes me feel that way; this is how I put it together ..............
It is a new approach for me, I have used last week's music as the basis of this week's, not just as an idea, but as a building block for week 49. I felt after listening to week 48's music that I wanted to use it as (in effect) a rhythm track for a new piece. The piece has become much more powerful, and certainly less naive. I love the amazing and random way that this week's additions interact with last week's piece.
I'm not quite sure how this new piece develops my storyline for last weeks music. Maybe week 49 is the general hubbub of life into which week 48's story fits?
I couldn't use week 48's painting again, but I have tried to use a similar creative process to the music; I have used open layers, making sure that the layers below are still visible. Both pieces are about showing their own history.
I have now to accept that this is not week 52 !!!
