to] see what you’ll do, but it’s more like you want to do something and then

scene, as a whole, as ‘political’ (in many cases, therefore, it would not be worthwhile
to search for political intention in musical outcomes), but nonetheless, it identifies the
ideologies that underlay the Improvised Music-making of many of Berlin’s improvisers,
providing insight into the social and political models represented in these remaining
cases.
