Nylon Curtain

I have continued the music experiment.  Today it was a Billy Joel B side.  There’s something soothing about background noise that I’ve chosen.  In class, I like the stillness of the silence.  It’s peaceful and feels very safe.  Even if I’m practicing alone in the studio, I don’t mind the silence.
