Just Add Water: A score, a set of instructions. Do this and you'll get that, guaranteed. Fill in the blank and it's done, easy! It's already been prethought for you, precomposed, predetermined. There's a cost of course; it's straightforward, but always the same. Reliable yet totally uninteresting. We need to experiment, see how we can shake things up. Maybe: It's never the same water that gets added in, always slightly different. Alpine water, or imported from China, we've already found some wiggle room. We wiggle some more, stay within our structure, our enabling constraints, but never seem to stop discovering. We begin to tell stories, abstract ones, using our tactics to fashion props, switching between Alpine and Chinese, creating a rhythm, building and breaking expectation. A makeshift stage. Then the illusion collapses; what are we talking about anyway? Who knows, but we felt something, that's the most important. We begin again…
