Album Notes
John Cage said that every sound is virgin. Improvisation is a way of navigating and exploiting that virginity. It is an attempt to draw both the performer and the listener into an aesthetically democratic space in which everything is viable.

An improvised performance speaks in one register, with one voice, but that voice is already multiple. The elements of a performance are not discrete, they differ qualitatively. The difference between this sound and that sound is the difference between this intensity and that intensity, this quality and that quality.

Making everything viable means attending joyfully to as many qualities as possible. It means hearing as many different voices as you can. In the end, being democratic just means attending to diversity. And that is just to say: attending to Life.
