Following an interesting conversation yesterday about focus and periphery in relation to listening/recording/mixing yesterday with Sam Hobbs, thinking about the relationship between the two, in both the visual and aural sense; thinking about filters and merging between the two, the ‘blur’; thinking about the translation of the subjective experience of focus/ periphery into creative expression; thinking about the internal dialogue involved in the constant shifting between them; and the emotional significance of this relationship. For me, I think it is about colours; also being aware of the varying widths of periphery, how this shifting alters focus, and trying to stay open to this transitional process. Maybe it is also about carefully choosing your own filters, and what this means, on a subjective level; the relationship between the ‘passive’ and the ‘active’, in a creative sense: absorbing.
