本書は「集団即興音楽」についてタージ・マハール旅行団を中心に論じている。その特色を明らかにすることの意義はなんだろうか、第一にタージ・マハール旅行団のような最前衛の音楽は、それ以後の音楽へ大きな影響を与え、新たな音楽創造の礎となることがあげられるだろう。しかしタージ・マハール旅行団の場合、単に音楽技法の問題に留まってはいない。それは経済とテクノロジーを背景とした近代的なディスクールの負の課題に対して、その克服の方法とも言える身体、環境、エコロジー、共同体的コミュニケーションの側から多くの問題を投げかけていたからである。それは21世紀に突入した現在の問題とも重なるのである。  また、本書はオートポイエーシス論からも集団即興について書いている。 オートポイエーシスは生命論、システム論、あるいは哲学を含んだ心的システムと言えるが、集団即興を語る上で重要な方法ではないかと考えるからである。
