Day 3. Today we started weaving the communal big hoop, and I tried to develop and solidify my ideas for holdable music.

I like that I get to be creative in this space and express myself. I just had the idea as pictured above, to display the “extras” while weaving the hoop. Does placing them on a plinth make them an art piece? What really amazed me was that a lady came in and participated in the weaving, and she went to take some pieces from the “display”. It totally blurred the lines between process and results.

What is holdable music? While creating a physical art piece and thinking of a story, the holdable art process and the artwork makes my story more memorable. The objects associated with the story became more prominent and holdable. It is like…the story matters more now because I created an art piece out of this.

Now I am a little overwhelmed. So many ideas, how to pack into sounds and songs? How many singing pieces can I create?

Maybe I should ask…how is holdable music?
