Thank you, I think I may have used the wrong word there. In what I wrote
previously substitute "attention" for "approval".
Would you agree with the statement:
"Art is when I create music in my studio. In private. Performance is when
ask strangers to pay attention to my art. In public."
I think even with the change my original point is still valid.
