Re: When does it end?



Jeff,

I'm curious to hear if anyone else has the same bittersweet dilemma:
Revolving Gear Syndrome.


Yeah. It's a lesser known malady, related to G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition
Syndrome). Heheheh. I tend to go for long periods of not changing
anything' cause I've found a set of sounds and a way of working I
really like/enjoy. I can be fairly content with this for extended periods.

But, after a while, dissatisfaction/boredom creeps in -- over the
months or even years. Suddenly, something snaps and all is chaos.
Then, everything is continually in flux 'til I find that "new" way of
sounding, listening, working and re-working the gear and my method
of interacting with it 'til I have hit on an area of interest that renews
my curiosity, sense of wonder and joy in simple noisemaking.

I am in one of those states of chaos right now -- waiting for the arrival
of the next phase (or for age and this decrepit corpus to catch up with me).

Best regards,

tEd kiLLiAn
