Balance the consistency principle with the inconsistency principle. Brian Eno Oblique Strategies.
As I listened to the notes I had scored from When Am I? yesterday and then played with some of the other ideas I had for the piece, I suspected I was making a mess. Then Brian Eno’s aforementioned Oblique Strategy arrived in my mind. Have I achieved that balance? Do I need to? The Strategy helped guide me to options. That is what’s important and I believe the intent behind why Eno and Peter Schmidt had articulated them. Worked for me today, I think. I’ll have another listen in the morning with some fresh ears… You can have a listen now.
