‘Don’t Overthink It’ (#onetakestudy Nº 7)

I came away from a session with Kaffe Matthews with some fragments of ideas—not themes, barely motives—let’s call them random arrangement of atoms. This study is an unprepared (without even a warm-up) first-run of some of these. Think of it as a soup made from whatever’s at hand.

I’ve taken the title for this latest study (‘Don’t Overthink It’) from an album by Corey Mwamba. (I hope you don’t mind, Corey.)

Kaffe and I are performing on Tuesday, April 23, 2024 at REH (Kopenhagener Straße 17, 10437 Berlin).
