when nicholas freilich speaks to the world,
he speaks to me.
even from japan.
his away message is an (unattributed) quote:
"the reason i play so many... so many sounds, maybe it sounds angry, is because i'm trying so many things at one time... i haven't sorted them out. i have a whole bag of things that i'm trying to work through, trying to get to one extension... there are some set things that i know, some devices that i know, harmonic devices that i know that will take me out of the ordinary path, you see, if i use it... but i haven't played them enough, i'm not familiar with them enough yet to take the one thing, the line through them, so i play all of them, you know, trying to acclimate my ears, so i can hear."
