"In Search of an Anchor" : Sometimes artists come up against NEW writ large... how do we find our way when the road seems so strange?

This has been frustrating… …frustrating because this is a violin I’m playing, the instrument that has been my friend and worst enemy for the better part of 23 years. I should know this. This shouldn’t be THAT hard. It’s still a violin, still has four strings…yet what Mr Crumb demands of me seems completely foreign and so far removed from my days in the conservatoire that I might as well be learning Spohr’s “Kazoo Concerto”.
