On V.I. avoiding work.
I don't know why I am sharing this, maybe because I feel that I am among friends here and can share openly, but I've been inspired or foolish enough to try a technique that I have actually seen performed on stage in front of a live audience. My old trombone college professor, the great Dr. McKinney, has a chamber group of friends where they will simply improvise a work for around 5 minutes. Sometimes, they will do several of these in an entire concert where one member will come up with a theme on the spot on which to base the piece upon, and it all happens in real time. I hit record in Cubase, and played this in without editing the performance whatsoever with the exception of some added swells in which I could not reach the slider while recording. So here is a complete raw improv, and please let me offer my uttermost complete apology if this was a complete waste of your time.
