Efren 20Type of seminar: Open - Music Group (composition, group arrangements and improvisation in modal music)

Reading sheets: Basic notions of solfege and reading sheets are necessary

The goal of these workshops is the experimentation within the field of the so-called “modal music”, which bases its structure on certain modes, rules and aesthetics of very specific and well-defined movements and ornamentation. With these premises, we analyze pieces belonging to the traditions that use these systems: Greek, Turkish, Iranian, Arabic, Azeri, Armenian, Kurdish, Indian, Afghan music… both in their melodic and rhythmic aspects.
