Material is the output of freely improvised music, not its input. The deliberate shaping of materials risks, at the very least, giving them a studied feel, and, at worst, rendering them inert. Dick and Chang instead use the materials they generate in one moment as a springboard to the next.  In the process – and improvisation is a process, not a genre – their music surprises. Bill Shoemaker, excerpt from the liner notes
