Eighty weeks of performances and recordings seems like a kind of milestone. That's a lot of hours of music, and it's entirely too many weeks of pandemic. Having had perhaps enough of it, we haven't yet willed it away.

My day before the performance was rather hectic, and I wasn't sure I'd be able to perform live at 8PM, but just fifteen minutes before showtime, everything started to resolve. After eighty weeks of practice, I was able to set up in just a few minutes and fall right into the right frame of mind.

These are particularly slow, in response to a fast-moving day. I hope these can provide a similar kind of refuge for you. Thank you for listening!
