Despite that music is a most abstract kind of art, people who create it can’t isolate themselves from what’s going on around them. Music improvisation, belonging by nature to a current moment, expresses improviser’s feelings, thoughts, and attitudes to every event happening in our disturbed world. Pain and hope, anger and compassion, nightmares and daydreams – everything can appear in the music created in a real time. In fact, it makes this music not so abstract as it can seem. The only thing that this music requires from a listener is to jump into its flow and to be a witness of the spontaneous creation.
