  • Connecting Conversations - The short answer is: yes!
    moment changes in their lives and in the wider society That is powerful art Coming from the musicians rather than a third party composer or off the end of a distinguished baton perhaps implies the concept also that musicians can determine how they self express which grinds against the norms of a musician s perceived role in western society Are they meant interpreters and conveyors of an organized musical endeavour Interestingly in some eastern cultures musicians are the masters within their community are gurus and have pupils who study under their intense guidance They are held in the highest regard by all and are treated as such In the west society at large still seems to have little regard for the musician or creative being So musicians forging their own musical path is tantamount to mutiny for some it would seem I m being provocative but sincere It interesting to note that much of these eastern musics contain improvisation albeit within some very set parameters as central to the musical nature and spirit Maybe there is an implicit trust that the musician will improvise and then articulate the feelings of the communities music on their behalf by the musician s personal creativity But I m only going to touch on that with the lightest of fingers for now Thinking in terms of a group evolving separately from a leader once power is seized by the group from a leader real change takes place and we have a momentary sense of not knowing We may have a military coup a prison riot a student sit in or an industrial strike This unsettles everyone even the perpetrators It is bad enough that groups in society demand their right of expression and terms and conditions without our artists taking it into entertainment or performance Some feel that surely music reassures comforts relaxes and calms us down Yes it does but for some of us we are made calm comforted by the true expression of what is going on for us in the moment shared with others who somehow feel the same We are heard We are matched reflected and reinforced We are anything but lonely Can we go further back into our human instinct Don t we make it up as we go along from birth mixed in with modelling from others internalizing processes and dealing with new discoveries We have to learn how to survive the pain of existence and the fear of the unknown Recreating this through play helps a child formulate their own view of the world develop empathy for the view of another during play and gain tolerance of another s expression and ideas even if they don t easily match their own Through play the child learns how to negotiate pace struggle realize and ultimately survive and develop a sense of self isn t that the essence of creativity Generally a child s play is not pre determined by adults that would be perverse We surely want our

  • Connecting Conversations - ‘Is there such thing as free improvisation?’
    Networking improvising Contributions The short answer is yes Improvisation over the years Is there such thing as free improvisation The jazz player without memory Improvising with Shostakovich Testing the Steinways Improvisation is both an act and art of self definition Interplay Het eeuwige leven van de barok muziek The Paradox of Improvisation Warning The Same source Expecting sounds Participants Read more Teacher 21st century Bijdrage Nigel Yandall Is there such thing as free improvisation A reflection by Nigel Yandall Bijdrage toevoegen Dear Bart Following up on the very interesting session on improvisation on Sunday afternoon 1 march in the Reflective Conservatoire Conference I thought I would make a few brief comments on the question of whether free improvisation actually exists the email challenge you set the group I am far from expert in this so my views should not be counted in any sense as empirically informed but are based almost entirely on personal experience It does seem to me that the question posed is at least in part a question of semantics if music is created improvised in an open and free setting and is the result of the creative imagination responding to aural and other stimuli present it could fairly reasonably be described as free improvisation However this does not take account of factors which inform the musician s or musicians choices at any one time and the fact that there is however large or small conscious or subconscious a vocabulary and repertoire that to some extent is likely to play a part in the creative process and be drawn upon in a not necessarily completely free manner What might be interesting to consider is how free improvisation intersects with formal musical training and if there are degrees of validity An expert musician s vocabulary and technique would
