Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"The long-running improvisers who trained their expressions at the improvisation performance site believed in the new possibilities at the end of the improvisation and gave a name of "super improvisation". There, improvisation and composition melt at unlimitedly high dimensions, and the unified world is expanding. Super supernatural composition that super transformation improves. Or super-improvisation as super-composition. In this work Masayasu Tsubouchi further adds a new super-improvisation index, so that exercise increased three-dimensional fluidity and sense of color, and entered a sort of magical area. Mysterious harmony brought about by irregular rise and diffusion. Here is the key to new pop music."-Shinya Matsuyama, via Google Translator
