Caetitu (Gibson / Weston / Mattos / Blume)
Released in: Great Britain
"The freedom of the moment is fundamental in free improvisation; a new universe is created each moment, one where things can occur in a cause and effect chain. But our thoughts, like our improvisations, need not follow a logical order. In this sense, improvisation has more of a likeness with the real world than does written music, in which interruptions of "reality" are suppressed. In improvised music, unintended occurrences have to be accepted and treated as something important. We cannot exclude them. Improvisation does not exist the moment before it occurs, and when the sound fades away, no historical points of reference are left. Recordings of improvisations are essentially empty, and at best conserve the form. They are unable to transmit the sense of time or space or of the natural context, which for an improvising musician is like a score. They are simply documents, from and for the memory. By living the present with the greatest possible intensity we not only accept our historical context, but we live the circumstances of the moment to the maximum."-Chefa Alonso, from the liner notes
