Type of Seminar: Open - Music Group
Seminars Subject: The art of improvisation based on the well developed system used in Indian Music
Participant Level: A basic control over the instrument is required.
Scores are given?: Yes, but participation is also possible without reading scores.
Seminars Goal: Indian classical music (Hindustani/North Indian) is a well developed and ancient melodic and rhythmical system based on improvisation. The improvisation in Indian music is structured within a “Raga” (Melodic mode) and “Thala” (Rhythmic cycle and patterns).
The goal of this seminar is to learn improvisation tools in Indian Music that can be applied to any modal musical system. We will work on developing a conscious phrasing while improvising, using rhythmical elements to enrich our improvisation and communication with others while improvising. Some folk songs from different parts of India will be taught as well.
The seminar will be accompanied by Yannis Zannis on Tabla in order to understand better the relationship between melody and rhythm in Indian Music.
Musical Instruments: each student should bring his own instrument
