I heard a brilliant improvisor a few weeks ago providing organ music between parts of the mass.  It was, as usual, fascinating.  Then he played a chord unlike anything I had ever heard before.  Determined to remember it, I was astonished that it came up again in the course of the improv.
I do not listen analytically: I have no desire to do so.  If someone can produce an unforgettable sound that is more than enough.  I do not need to know what it was.  But I will not forget it.
