A musician without borders
Gilles Apap in India -
by JENNIFER PAULL
'... free from convention ...'
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, ...
but the one most responsive to change.
-- Charles Darwin, (1809-1882), naturalist, author
There are few things as daunting as trying to put into words, the essence of something for which words are by definition, inadequate.
Of course, the information provided by Apapiz Productions is jammed with detail of Gilles Apap's new DVD, as is his fascinating, tongue-in-cheek web site.
I could copy and paste every paragraph of information in the press kit. These are indeed descriptive words of what one is watching, but they fall short of capturing the magic portrayed, the lessons learned, or the inspiration transmitted.
Gilles Apap is always creating, always on the move, always looking for a better, more flexible appreciation of Music and a way of incorporating this understanding and his discoveries into his own 'little bit of wood I need under my chin'.
