Interpretation to me is the respective state of attentiveness. Not to confuse with random whatever comes to mind playing. I don't get inspired, I pay attention to the development of the sound and try to figure out where it leads me. Where it wants to go. And some days I'm more attentive and some less. I'm not always able to give every note it's rightful meaning and value but I try to and adjust my 100%, my aspiration accordingly. If today's 100% are lower or higher than yesterday's, that's fine. My mother taught me a very valuable lesson, which is relative perfection, so to speak. To accept the relativity of 100%.
