I’m sitting in Zankel Hall watching the dress rehearsals for tonight’s big show. I am nervously excited. The countless small surgeries were successful and The Child is now standing confidently on its feet. Paul Dwyer sounds truly amazing. I can’t say that enough. He has really made my piece his own, in his particular quiet and mysterious way. It has come to life in his hands.
My only task now is to get into a zen state of mind and enjoy the performance in all its totality without analyzing and second guessing myself.
I still can’t believe this is happening.
