"Affect me and know me better."
I could finally give Ray Gibson's lovely text score INTERACT some well-deserved attention. Each instruction, like the one above, directs the performer to physically engage with their instrument in a new way. The score echoes a ghazal, but one where the refrain has taken over most of each line. It is a text charged with intimate physicality, and approaching it felt poignant and even a bit ironic in this moment of generalized physical distancing.
You can see the score and find out more about Ray's music HERE.
