On synchronicity and mash-ups

click for: Quicktime version / Flash version

"The creative incorporation of what originally arises in our experience is but a overlapping disruption of the order or timing of our life-narrative. A talented jazz musician will take an accidental or mistaken chord or note and improvise with and around it, creating in the process an entirely novel passage within the context of a perhaps quite familiarly ordered piece of music."

Still fiddling around recent concert footage, never top-notch tuned at expressing musical rhetoric, Sam Renseiw instead mashed up some visual a-synchronicity: A whisper of inverted cello counterpoint, lightly marcato-ed; (with some inspired electronic drift studies in the three upper strings to follow); or an alluring, infinitesimal pianissimo: febrile, fickle, fey, inquisitive, insistent, jokey, puzzled, surprised, declamatory and somewhat messy.
