This theme might cover performances showing a disciplined and dedicated approach to a technique or process. Perhaps where a performer is recognised for having etablished a performance practice. For example, check out John Tilbury's piano performance at Episode 4: Freedom is a Constant Struggle.

These paired ‘terms’ are not synonyms nor are they binary oppositions but words that combine to (hopefully) produce un-rational anti-categories. The aim is to allow (encourage) the archive to be read in ways counter to normative or reductive categories. To allow things in the archive to appear in sometimes unlikely groupings and to resist essentialism.
