The “point in question” of the title of this album is always difficult to put into words. Miles Perkin, a Canadian double bassist and composer who is conquering the world bit by bit, prefers to do it musically, and this new opus gives you the entire picture of that fulcral point of a continuously reformulated question: what it is to write music for a band of improvisers? The conclusions you arrive to aren’t final, but they immediately deny the notion (once defended in contemporary classical music) that a score was enough to have music, not being necessary to perform it: a composition is incomplete until the moment it is played.
