chinese meditation balls, when used properly, focus your energy and muscle coordination. the idea is to rotate two metal balls in your hand without touching them. this is something i feel i've been able to do fine in normal settings. doing it on stage is something else, as meditating is a very deep space to approach, especially in public. doing my best in light of this, i created a timbre from this activity on esp night #2 in the roy o. disney music hall in the spring of 2008.
