The Importance Of Performance – Looking At TY Segall

It is interesting to take a moment to re-examine the divides we place between different art forms.


Between music and film and theatre and ‘art’ as in that which goes in a gallery.


And performance art and acting and poetry and writing and so on and so on and so on. If one is playing music to people one is performing and once one is performing, one is giving more to their audience than just the song.


Like it or not you are giving a new level of meaning and a new target for interpretation by the audience. So performance is important and you are a performer. You are not just a musician, you are a performer.


TY Segall, on the other hand, is a genius performer.
