With installations that are due to be delivered to a commissioning organization, there’s the difficult moment of “letting it go.” That can be like saying goodby to a favorite child. The same is true with writings or recordings that are about to be distributed or published. One always thinks they could be further improved. The well-known phrase “Don’t make the perfect the enemy of the good” comes to my mind a lot in such situations.
I often tinker with pieces that have existed for a while, seeing if I can improve them.
