THOUGHTS ON IMPROVISATION AS EXPERIENCED THROUGH SOUNDSHOPPE

Sometimes I play with the music, and sometimes I go against it. Sometimes going against it brings the overall sound to a whole new level, an unexpected area that can be quite exciting.

It seems that nothing can go wrong. I can throw anything into the mix, and it will work.

If I worry about running out of ideas, then I will, but the moment I stop worrying and just play, the ideas flow.
