Interesting perspectives Matthias. |
I think it's like finding something - say a beautiful flower and taking someone to show it to, who will appreciate it. That would be the equivalent of performing a composition. Free improvisation is more like going for a walk with your friend and discovering something together. The risk there is that nothing is found but the prize is the mutual discovery and the possibility of a deep resonance within the discoverer and the witness. Canned and fresh - I like the analogy :-)
This reminds me of my favourite poem by the 17 century Japanese poet Basho:
Breaking the silence of an ancient pond
A frog jumps into water
A deep resonance
