On the resolution of balance #11:
In a story, I read about observing the balancing of the left and right hands playing the piano and this made me think of another aspect of balance and how it can be achieved. Playing music reveals aspects of balance not yet addressed. Balance doesn’t need to be symmetrical; it can be achieved through sustained momentum. In performance, there are narrative devices used to create art: repetition, motifs and themes, symbolism and structure. Using these techniques, music creates tensity, where together many notes and instruments build tension and finally achieve a balanced composite whole.
