Compositions happen in small bits, over time and you react to things in rehearsals. So, for me it’s about having an open-minded approach and a flexible mindset.
As well as musical influences, everyday life and occurrences influence me. What I bring to the stage is not only my performance and understanding of the music, but my personality, experience and perceptions. The work I do is affected by everything I encounter and perceive. So I go to lots of concerts and meet lots of different people, and generally feel open to new possibilities.
