Professional Small Ensemble

The explanation/demonstration via recordings of a group of pieces from my repertoire of quintet and quartet pieces. All participants would have had a chance to practice the notated material before this weekend. I would make a web page where they can download their part, get a score and listen to various versions of the pieces we would play (as parts, as a whole and in different tempos for practice purposes). A variety of ensemble terrains could be covered in this area including collective improvisation, interdependent rhythmic structure, open harmony (w/o changes) small duo trio interactions etc….

Orchestra & Big Band – “Sound Mass”

We would explore a variety of orchestral textures that would be relatively simple to play individually but would depend on all the players hearing what is happening as a whole – which I would guide them through. Some of these materials could be generated as notation and given in advance. I would also write a few melodies, harmonies and especially for the big band some kind of repetitive material, that could also act as a floor for a few improvised solos.

Drum Master Class – “The Language of Color”

Class would begin with a demonstration of my solo music combine with talking about extended techniques and how I developed this vocabulary and organized it to create a repertoire of solo work. Then I would guide a few players through the process of developing some techniques to give all the participants a sense of how they can explore this territory sonic vocabulary. Finally we would do a large ensemble piece with everyone participating. The first step of that would be organizing subsections of the ensemble that specialize in sounds in certain frequency ranges. Then conducting them through a variety of textural and rhythmic landscapes. I would not see this as a performative outcome, more as a process oriented experience.

Pré-Professional Small Ensemble

This would follow the same format as the Professional Small Ensemble, but the difficulty of the material would be significantly lower. However though the parts might be simpler to learn, the challenges will be there for the players in the learning/listening/hearing of how it all goes together – hearing each other and knowing where/how/when to relate to each other.
