I took a break here...I didn't expect the response. It will take a few days to digest this. I will get back to this on Sunday. BUT....this quote is still pretty unconventional unless you are qualifying a lot of these terms.
"You can play perfectly well at any dynamic without using support, the model being what you do when you play fff. To do it at a lower dynamic, you just blow less" This seems very close to saying "you don't need to support" when playing the clarinet just blow. I realize that one can match sounds/timbres by imitation without putting into words what you are doing but to deny you consciously or unconsciously use support when playing doesn't make sense. I am dividing things into two parts....conscious of the technique or oblivious/unconscious of the technque. The results are another matter. Your quote deals with techniques for achieving an end. How do we do it. "using" is your word... You may distinguish between awareness and consciousness but to what end? There is no question....we use support when we play the clarinet.....I assume you are not denying it but it does seem that way. I guess I'm not sure why you are breaking this down to a more complex procedure. Moreover if "You can play perfectly well at any dynamic without using support" there must be something else that replaces support . 5+3=8 You cannot replace the 3 with 0 and still get 8 for the answer.
