Of all the things your Life Coach loves to instruct you about, keeping your balance leads the list, perhaps because there are so many things you need to keep balanced: your life/work ratio, your emotions, your diet and your exercise schedule ... But let’s take a lesson from the master of balance, Phillippe Petit: “You must not fall. When you lose your balance ... You must not force yourself to stay steady. You must move forward.”
Proper balance also improves music & while it's not something I often adjust, I'm impressed by the results when someone else does it well; as an example, I offer the Third Power’s Sizzle remix of "Call Me" near the end of the set – a track I believed was already quite fine becomes absolutely amazing.
If I’ve got it right, this session should be walking that balance beam between gritty funk & moody downtempo, between sensuality & urgency. By the time this hour is over, I hope you’ve found your balance, too.
