Grandmothers favourite (CZ/DE) (modern creative, impro, auto-composition) Post modern sudoku jazz

To mistake is the only chance for something new to happen and therefor isn’t a mistake. Unrehearsed, impolite, unwashed, charismatic, vicious sounds from the pit. Instant compositions. The naive glorification of improvising the new.
