"Finally I realized that the kind of sound made in an indeterminate situation includes what could result in no other way; for example, the sound of a player making up his mind, or having to change it. In fact, the indeterminate notation I've used is, as far as I know,
the only possible one for the kind of sound I should like. And don't forget, we also like to be surprised.

...and the rhythm produced by that situation is like no other rhythm."
