THIS MONTH's QUOTATION
What's left of an improvisation if nothing is fixed?
What's left of any performance afterwards, whether fixed or improvised? Improvisation might not be fixed beforehand, but in a way it becomes so afterwards through the simple fact of it having happened. Is something less fixed because it can't be repeated? (...)
What's left from the experience are the images and energies and confluence of events which can resound over many years.
