Architecture of a Trial is about a young lady who plays the piano for the last 20 years.
She just past all her exams with bravura. But she suffers in her head terribly.
She measures herself with the sun. Her heart gets burnt. Her courage falters.
She invites me to listen to her piano at the Conservatory in Almaty.
As she starts playing she says:"Piano is the biggest failure of my life."
I decide to look for myself. I listen carefully..
Is it when Error turns into Failure that a trial turns into Trial?
There are some errors, never mind but her attitude does not accept error.
She is on Trial instead. It is her attitude which makes her feel she is a failure,
it is NOT her playing.
I could detect no failure but a trail instead.
