I try to do my own improvisations as much as possible (keeps me in = practice) and these collections are superb as teaching devices.   Darrell     > I have used the T.T.

(back) Subject: recordings/improvisation-long From: "Randy Terry" <randyterry@laumc.org> Date: Fri, 22 Dec 2000 11:04:44 -0800   I played "by ear." from the beginning. Went to college as a music major knowing only the most reudimentary things like F-A-C-E, and E-G-B-D-F. I struggled with every excercise, every piece. I wrote letter names by the notes, and listened to recordings to learn rhythms - until my teacher discovered I had TWO of everything!   My favorite American improvisers are Gerre Hancock and Dorothy Papadakos = in NYC, and although I have never heard Paul Manz in person, If his improvisations are as well crafted and the published improvisations I = think he is a great one for unity of form within a piece.   When I was with the Department of Liturgy and Music (Ep.) in Alabama we hosted Hancock for an improvisation/hymn festival at the Cathedral in Birmingham. I was lucky enough to be able to observe how he prepared and = to hear him speak about the basics of his "bag of tricks." He PRACTICED everything, just as he recommends in his talking. The final presentation may differ in varying amounts, but the practiced form and style was clear.   I find even his most form centered improvisations VERY free. In his workshops he always talks about rehearsing the improvisation - having a basic form in mind. He jokes about "when in doubt - TRILL!" or repating a "wrong" note to make it "right." These suggestions are not just humorous, they are RULES!   In listening to his recordings I can hear these basics, regardless of how many notes he is able to play! I listen over and over to the hymn based improvisations, which I love. I am not as fond of his non hymn based improvisations. I have been able to incorporate elements of his style = with my own. The thing I can do well that I got from him is ornamenting a hymn melody in a contemporary style. This really isn't very hard. I just got = a digital mini-disc recorder and last night I turned it on and went an = doodled around for an hour (after listening to the new Chrsitmas CD he put out.) When I listened to what I had done, I was amazed. I started out with a = soft version on "Lo How a Rose." It was really quite nice. Then a version of "In dulci.." trying some of the simi-theatre pedal stlye he used on the recording. This was harder for me but I see with a little work I can do = it! Then I did something loud and non hymn based with Trumpet and Clarion on Swell in dialogue with full great w/8' Trumpet and appropriate pedal to match the great. I was just totally messing around. I got completely = lost key wise and was going through keys and there were dissonant/wrong notes quite a bit. Later when I listened - it was very cool - and musical = because I kept going when my ear said give up and played like I meant it! I am = not very adventurous with keys. But this had the spice of color and running through keys that I hear with him. Now don't get me wrong - it is not = even close to what he does, but if it is even close to acceptable to me, my own worst critic, then I will definitely REHEARSE in that direction!   I love Dorothy Papadakos' "Over the Rainbow." Especially the jazzy chords wafting around at the end. I was able - with a good bit of trial and = error, to figure those out and once used them to end an improvisation of "Fairest Lord Jesus."   I THINK LISTENING TO RECORDINGS IS TOP PRIORITY FOR ASPIRING IMPROVISERS! Playing written out ones and studying them is important, too. But for = those so connected to the score, it may help simply to write out a hymn melody = and go from there. I think the key is not stopping no matter what, to try to figure out something. Of course you have to do that too, but at least = part of the time just practicing, "wrong" notes and all, really helps. I have not recorded myself in about 3 years and I am amazed at the change. Also = in last nights session, something that I thought would be a succession of mistakes turned out to be quite acceptable. I was going somewhere, "off" notes and all, and I quit abruptly to change gears, and I really wish I would have done a real ending. It would have ALMOST (important word here) worked!   The current discussion is varried accompaniments. I am less adventurous here. I will at times "go for it" during the introduction, even using an ornamented melody or simple, brief "toccata" style. During singing I used added tones like 7ths, 9ths, and 13ths to harmony, passing tones, organ descant, pedal points, etc. I less often used non-key chords like = secondary dominants because I HAVE to be SURE of them. But I do use OBVIOUS changes = in registration. Interludes are fun. But my hymn accompaniments (other than intros or interludes) NEVER are flamboyant or keep people from singing!   I am so thankful that I am not scared of this and never have been. It is extremely fulfilling in church with the inspiration that offers to = improvise something simple, appropriate and lovely. People do notice and appreciate those offerings and for me it is *my* communion!
