Remembering old times:
I always changed my way of doing things
when and if anyone worshipped or criticized me or what I did.
Especially in musical issues and choices;
the way I play or compose or perform.
In Dutch we say: “to be everymans friend”,
which means “to please everybody” in following
people’s opinions and trying to act how they want.
But how can I possibly know what other people mean, what they desire?
Not by any means!
Trying, suffering, doing and trying again what others want?
It almost took my life, my entire energy, my personality.
The project of PianoTweets is the ultimate proof of the fact that
I always will follow the voice of my heart,
the direction of my intuition,
the movement of my fingers…
No matter what!
