rahsaan roland kirk
c. showed me this video last night, and now i have a new obsession.
it's not that often you see something so--
i love it when impossible things reside together, and work despite their impossibility.
things like playing three flutes with your mouth at once & then adding a nose flute all while circular breathing
playing amazingly layered music--
both hip & moving
& so very present--
so virtuosic yet somehow void of narcissism and ego.
maybe this is just my interpretation (the part about an absence of narcissism & ego, which seem to be burned away by the music itself), but i'm really glad c. made me watch this at the close of halloween night 2012.
