5 days of creative exploration, and no I didn’t find out exactly what is holdable music. I think, it is going to be an evolving definition.
When I truly believe in my mind, my imperfections, my everything, my art and music are holdable.
There are a few common themes that we discovered while engaging with the community: harmony with nature, unity, and memorable moments with loved ones. We would love a better world, and we can express it through creating something. That goes with music too.
The residency did inspire me to write a song. I have the sound in my head, but it is not ready to be presented yet.
As a musician, music is holdable when I truly believe and make things happen.
