Move away from mirroring or imitation of natural phenomena as this is only secondary. It is fundamental to recognise and accept two movements in all art, one the mirroring of life around us,the other the creation of a new thing that has a living animation i.e. a life movement of it’s own. Use plastic orchestration and rhythmic vitality to create a spirit of life movement. When rhythm is found we feel in touch with life.
