[upbeat jazz music] That’s the thing that’s generally encouraged with sitting in the audience and letting like the music be made by others, which is great. But also I like to sort of be on stage when possible and to do stuff myself. I actually sort of block it out. It’s all repressed. I don’t remember any of my performances, otherwise I would sort of play them over and over again in my head. Even recordings with my music I like, you know, once they’re like mixed and mastered, like done and everything, I just can’t look at them again. Yeah, I don’t know. It’s so easy to get bogged down especially because you…you put so much work into every single note, in every little detail, and you could spend so much time just going over anything like, “Oh, this is like what I did and like like this is this. I remember, like, this feeling; I remember this technique…” like …. when you just have when there’s so much it feels like 20 pages of music and every single note is something that you spent a lot of thought on consciously or or I guess even unconsciously, it can be really overwhelming so I tend to just sort of like, “next.” ♫ ♫ ♫
