This week I am in the middle of a corn field, immersed in the world of Ben Johnston‘s extended just tuning. Kepler is rehearsing in a church in rural Wisconsin.
Two other people arrived during our first session yesterday, a young film maker from Georgia, and a wood worker/experimental instrument builder from Vancouver.
I got the oddest sensation that this project is like a loadstone – a pinpoint center of some alternate universe… If we stayed here long enough, the entire church would fill with a congregation of seekers, past and present…. can’t quite shake the feeling.
