…when expectation ends
The well known quote below brings up a number of questions. For example:
Must “peace” mean “quiet”?
Can “inner peace” somehow co-exist along with changing everyday states such as anxiety, doubt, excitement or relaxation?
Is it possible to be engaged in energetic, noisy or strenuous activity, yet be in a state of inner peace?
How does one become free of expectations whilst still striving for a result?
This piece is a free-form exploration of these questions, as repeating musical material resolves in a number of different ways.
