This is a failed sample. The concept intrigues me, but the sample has failed to materialise.
I was worrying about ‘corners’ and ‘angles’. I know mathematically that an angle is a turn. I looked up in my faithful dictionary the definition of a corner, and then its etymology. It comes from the Latin that means ‘horn’. This then sent me off on a concept and ideas blitz:
For my sample I wanted to form a horn but it has ended up creating a form that has caused much mirth in this house for its non-intended phallic resemblance. Cover your eyes if you’re bashful. I have tried twisting it to make a more curved horn which has invited winces of pain sound effects. However, this game is about sharing successes and failures. I had not intended to create a phallic form. I had intended to create a form that re-materialised the origin of the word ‘corner’ and played on the sayings ‘stuck in a corner’.
Even though the sample is hysterical and not working on so many levels, the unearthed etymology still holds my interest:
I am yearning for the holiday, for completing sample 5 and developing the scale of this project and the weight of this project through welding steel and combining non-traditional materials.
Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don’t live it, it won’t come out of your horn. They teach you there’s a boundary line to music. But, man, there’s no boundary line to Art.
