actually this is far more what i'm trying to get at when i say 'there is
no right and wrong in music, no rules, only context'. choices being
freedom mean that choices lead to freedom but lead to more choices.
design is problem-solving. more choices mean more problems to solve -
but they are now individual problems and not those of the rule-book
which a student shoudl have digested and placed on the shelves in year 1.
