▶ Just how important is eye contact between musicians?
▶ Sorry to hear Ryuichi Sakamoto is battling stage 4 cancer: “Since I have made it this far in life, I hope to be able to make music until my last moment, like Bach and Debussy whom I adore.”
▶ This is so great:
“I often do middle-of-the-night practice sessions at the @Royal Albert Hall , and have grown rather fond of hall staff calling up to the organ with requests. At 1am on Friday 20th, someone called up asking me to play Bach’s Toccata in D minor. It turned out it was Bonobo’s band. 12 hours later they had written me an organ part, and 18 hours later I was helping them close their show to an audience of 5000. This was, undoubtedly, the best moment of my life so far…!”
