Wing it

When asked to define improvising, I say I play music that is less than five minutes old.  Yet it isancient, in that thes ounds that attract me have an archaic feel.  When it is truly happening I feel that I am lightly touching something deep in culture, deep in genetics, deep in our animal nature &mdash  a fundamental connection to others. Making art, whether you do it solo or in a group, derives its patterns from everything around us, in an interdependent network.  We learn to work as nature does, with the material of ourselves: our body, our mind, our companions, and the radical possibilities of the present moment.
