And we are making progress...
This week I have been working on my face. Yes, using the reflection in the recording studio to see how I can improve the visual element of my playing. One of the great things I learnt in America whilst studying under the guidance of Dr. P in Advanced Wind Band Conducting and Rehearsal Strategies, was the importance of one's facial expressions. Nonetheless, it's very difficult (especially when I am focusing so hard on many other things). This shows a greater need for individual attention and practice in this area.
I received helpful feedback from S about the effectiveness of suddenly approaching a note with confidence (rather than easing into it and sliding as I was previously doing). Some links have been drawn between the theremin and the electric guitar.
I also worked on the pentatonic and whole tone scale during my practice, which sounds good with many of my original tracks.
Some things to try for next time:
Current settings on the amp:

P.S. Confirmed that I will be working with a friend who is a VJ for my Sound Lab performance.
Woo!! June 2nd @ 6pm Io Myers, UNSW. See you there :)
