While interesting, and she is obviously practiced, I think this video shows that increased complexity does not equate to increased expression.

I agree. Too much complexity (as she defined it) ended up being more of a demonstration, than actually being listenable and interesting. Or perhaps it's just because she crammed too much complexity in to such a short piece, and if that level of complexity was spread out over a 3 minute piece, it'd be better?

I think in the end, each type of complexity is just another tool that can be used. And just like carpentry, you don't have to use every single tool every single time you build something.
