FBSMC 13 The Science of Music as a Living Thing, Zoom Session 2 and video 4, "Creating Space."

Hello Everyone! FBSMC 13, The Science of Music as a Living Thing  Zoom Session 2 will be Thursday 7/8 at 6:30pm. This session is called "Creating Space." A video about the inspiration for this title came about through my practice session last night while playing with different mouthpieces, flutter tonguing and fast slurs. It was quite fascinating as I was led down  a road that deepened my understanding and confirmed more of what I've gathered about resistance, pressure and interface as they relate to how space is actually filled. This short video shows a bit of my process. Here is the link to the video:  https://youtu.be/NNDUpZfjTh8  -For those interested in attending the Zoom session, the donation is $10 for students and 15-$20 for everyone else. Please send your donation to paypal.me/vierabolter. Please write that it is for FBSMC 13. Getting the donation sent on Wednesday 7/7 would be best but please no later than 5:30pm EDT on 7/8. If you sent in your payment and your link was not sent to you, please get in touch with me by email normtobe at gmail dot com or text 617-759-1620 no later than 10:15am EDT on 7/8 to make sure you get the Zoom link. This link is only meant for those who donated, please do not share the link. If you want to inform others about this, please have them get in touch with me by email or text so I know who they are. Thank you!  ***Please bring at least 3 mutes, a plastic water bottle, a cloth and a hat of some kind to the session. The experimenting continues as we create space through resistance, pressure and interface! Please watch the video before the session. Looking forward to seeing you there! To your well being, Norman, Mr. Bolter etc..
