Everything you do in life should affect your playing.
What I read becomes part of who I am (so to speak)
which then gets reguritated musically. In fact, I
would say that to only react musically to notes and
rhythms and whatnot will sooner-or-later dry you out
Why are lyrics in songs? Why name a song "Requiem for
the Victims of Hiroshima" rather than "Serenade for
Strings"? Etc. etc. etc.
Music is a part of the continuity of existence, so
get out there and live! Manuel Barreco said "One
cannot be a musician without drinking from the
fountain of Culture." (paraphrase)
Personally, I read esoteric occult books, Chinese
alchemy and comic books!
