This workshop is the fifth class of the Contemporary Improvisation (CI) Master Series.
The workshops in the CI master series are a great way to learn more about what we do in the CI department. Each workshop will be led by a different CI instructor or guest, and will feature different approaches to improvisation through various genres and styles of music. All are welcome to attend and participate.
As artists, we often find ourselves, and our music, being labeled or categorized, clearly defined as one thing or another: classical or jazz, traditional or modern, composer or improviser. The truth is that we are all incredibly unique artists, and that each one of us has a distinctly musical voice, with our own ideas, experiences, tastes, and interpretations, no matter what genres we tend to draw on. In every moment of our musical lives we make countless decisions about phrasing, tempo, timbre, expression, presentation … the list goes on and on.
