However, Weiskopf’s way of manipulating diatonic triad pairs helps weiskopff improviser to create lines with characteristic shapes, with high densities of texture and with intentionally vague harmonic colors that according to Liebman could be considered as twelve-tone characteristics.
It is a lot of work. Close X Learn about MP3s.
Intervalic Improvisation – A player’s Guide
Less experienced students might yet be confused by the quite strict playing rules as to the transposition, inversion and permutations of the four diatonic triads on the one hand, and the absence of any theory of its harmonic implications on the other. Instead of the latter, he uses traditional tonal terminology such as first and second inversions of the triad. There’s also a small discussion here https: These repeated notes, marked in grey colors, together form the C whole-tone scale.
The third triad pair misses the flatted fifth of the chord and the fifth triad pair misses the minor third. The adding of extra notes to Bm and A in weismopf turns the triads into tetrachords. Please click here to start media. The second has the major ninth instead of the more common flatted ninth.
Intervallic Improvisation: The Modern Sound
Recording artist and master improviser, Walt Weiskopf, presents the simple technique of “triad pairs” using only two triads to create long, exciting phrases for all improvisers. Both in his examples and in his practical instructions, he thoroughly addresses the twelve-tone operations of transposition, rotation and extension. The same with first rotation trichords [rotation, transposition].
The ones marked with an asterisk are the most important in defining the sound of the aeiskopf. Garzone addresses the motivational issue in plain language, saying that his method should simply enable him and his students to improvise freely.
You can also listen to your MP3 at any time in your Digital Library. Therefore these steps weiskoppf the pre-given chords should always go hand in hand with patient and conscious ear training. Instead of grouping two triads on top of the D7 chord in bars 1—2, I group three triads.
In the first bar these triads are put in succession, and in the second bar they are intertwined to form a hexatonic scale.
Another illustrative example of creating such an outside effect results from the adaptation of tritone substitutions to dominant chords. All five authors leave it to the discretion of the individual musician to make his choices from their models.
But the simplicity of this approach is also deceptive. The example above shows the most inside i. This can again be played in any position, but one should avoid repeating the same position of the previous triad. The transcription shows a development in my operations with the triads. The chords that Bergonzi considers this hexatonic refers to are written above the bar.
Apparently, the shape of the melodic lines prevails over application of the correct scales to the chords, which results in interesting examples of outside notes.
If you do not wish to be contacted, leave it blank. Seven trichords are non-symmetric, with different intervals between the three pitches: Rate this product’s difficulty level: In order to generate meaningful lines one needs to develop imtervallic agility to make multiple decisions.
Intervallic Improvisation: Book
Although Bergonzi weiskolf not discuss any relations to twelve-tone techniques, some of his patterns can be considered as one half of a twelve-tone row. Bergonzi and Garzone are more in favor of an intuitive approach.
Because in the ii-V-I progression Emin7 b5 — A7 intergallic — Dm, all chords are in the key of D harmonic minor, the triad pair Gm, Amaj 5 will sound well and inside all three chords – recalling a common impdovisation of the minor chord in the bebop style. I would for instance take a single major chord and map the vertically stacked hexatonics in which according to Bergonzi this chord is identified, ordering them from more inside to more outside the sound of the basic chord.
Music Lists are as unique as the musician! By playing these triad pairs, alternating their root positions and inversions, a series of intervals is represented.
The interval of an augmented fourth between the initial notes of the trichords cause these combinations to sound more outside. His analysis of this developmental process, his chromatic concepts of tonal and non-tonal superimpositions and his sketch of the parallels with the development of classical music through the ages served as an illustrative theoretical background.
As a consequence it is left to the discretion of the individual artist to decide which tonal references can be associated to which triad combinations. My name is whited out inside front cover. See all condition definitions – opens in a new window or tab With its high density this scale pattern lacks an obvious tonal reference, making it an attractive pattern to be superimposed on using a multitude of pre-given or improvjsation chord changes.
The second is about intrvallic position of the next triad. Used to contact you regarding your review. By choosing these notes, Garzone explicitly distances himself from a rigid chord-scale approach.

The cover art and liner notes are included for a CD. However, the fact that this technique facilitates the improviser to create approved melodic lines just by playing variations of the same six notes implies the danger of a mechanical approach. It served as a roadmap for the journey into the more advanced improvisational practice beyond the intevallic approach. In the following example the C triad in root position is followed by the same triad in displaced permutation.
