Already Friedrich Nietzsche knew that a child is hidden in each of us - to transform him into our time - a child who wants to play. In hardly any other activity does this childlike pleasure in playing manifest itself in adults as genuinely as it does when they play music. In particular, improvisation should be about nothing more than playing with all available and imaginable components of a given context. This is also how the Swiss-Norwegian alliance, based on the pianist Christoph Stiefel and saxophonist Karl Seglem, sees it.

Although it is based on how children experience music, it is explicitly aimed at the experienced listener, one who knows how to consciously focus his or her spontaneous perceptions. Here, the clarity of the playful sequence is at least as important as the immediate expressive imp
