This video is a first of a series of improvisation with Electric drums. The concept is to play freely, without thinking technical issues.The challenge is to make it constantly and gradually and see what happen if I can reach better expression with such instrument. Let's see

The Electric drum set isn't satisfactory in terms of sound and aesthetic but it can be amusing. My purpose is to try to explore the expressive possibilities ...

Ornette Coleman, Pioneer of Free Jazz, this melody is really dancing (actually) staiyng in your head

Remembering Ornette Coleman on what would have been his 90th birthday (March 9, 1930 - June 11, 2015) He was one most polarizing figures in the history of jazz. The alto saxophonist who outwitted segregation to hit the scene in 1959 and turn the music world on its head. Bursting through bebop and inventing harmolodics, a sound flowing with the unpredictable rhythms of being. He was called rebellious, disruptive, a fraud, thrown off band stands, horn mangled, shunned by his peers, rejected. He insisted his music be heard on concert stages and not restricted to small smoky basements. Knowing the cost of being a free thinker. He was guided by his harmolodic philosophy of love and expressing life’s surprises through art. He is now called a genius, an icon, a legend, known as one of the most important figures in the history of music. One who is admired by artists across all genres for his convictions, the fight for freedom of creativity and to be one’s self.

R.I.P. McCoy Tyner

"To me living and music are all the same thing. And I keep finding out more about music as I learn more about myself, my environment, about all kinds of different things in life. I play what I live. Therefore, just as I can't predict what kinds of experiences I'm going to have, I can't predict the directions in which my music will go. I just want to write and play my instrument as I feel." McCoy Tyner - Happy 81st birthday to the master.

This guy has built a REALl drum machine in about 6 years meanwhile could just buy a Super technological digital E-drums that sounds like real.
what does the reason makes creative man to pursue such demanding project like this and probably useless in our IT modern time?
The curiosity to see the creature taking live;
the satisfaction and pleasure to watch the mechanical devices beating REAL drums, making REAL acoustic sound.
The same pure passion of a child with the favorite toy.

During a period of 6 years, I build this pneumatic drum machine, "Hammerwerk". It is now one more instrument of my aural shape orchestra.
Es hat etwas gedauert, aber das "Hammerwerk ist jetzt fertig. Beim nächsten Konzert wird es zu hören sein.

Art Blakey and the jazz messengers play "Moanin'" I always wonder if trumpet players when faces this tune is thinking about the superb solo of Lee Morgan !!🙂

We could never forget JazzCorner roster trombonist and educator Robin Eubanks' birthday! Philadelphia born, Robin was the musical director for Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers and was part of Dave Holland's groups for more than 15 years. From 1988, here he is along with Philip Harper: tp, Javon Jackson: ts, Benny Green: p, Peter Washington: b and of course Art Blakey - Blue Note Records on drums

I like so much to see how this band manage the fast time tune. it deserved to be listened.

Happy birthday to guitarist Russell Malone. Mostly self-taught when he was 12 in his native Georgia and saw George Benson perform on television with Benny Goodman, he was inspired. He's toured with Harry Connick Jr, and a long time member of the Diana Krall Trio, and toured and recorded with so many other jazz luminaries. Such an incredible guitarist - just check him out in this video!

Learn Music Through Improvisation

To learn how to play instruments with the Improvisation Learning System does not need special skills or previous knowledge.

This system uses our natural skill that is called improvisation: in the act of playing an unknown instrument we improvise, and during this experience we learn.

In this situation we are not concerned about playing right or wrong. The psychological block of being afraid to make mistakes doesn't exist in this context, so you are in a better, relaxed condition to learn.

Furthermore, the Improvisation Learning System shows how to open new doors of your creativity and to reach your own musicality, giving a chance to find again the lost motivation and enthusiasm for bored and unsatisfied musicians.

The improvisation learning system is supported from a research started in 2009 in collaboration with the Contemporary Music Department of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater and the Department of Improvised music and jazz of Conservatory of Trieste. The result of this research is a thesis published in 2011: “Free improvisation: a creative and didactic approach for the development of musical skills”

The essay is discusses the validity of ILS (improvisation learning system) examining previous research by experts of music and improvisation like: Stephen Nachmanovich, Derek Bayley, David Borgo, William L. Cahn, Makihara Toshi, Pauline Oliveros, and analysis of practical teaching system for improvised music of Professor Anto Pett.

The concept of using free improvisation (non idiomatic improvisation) was already developed in the sixties for didactic purposes and started to be used in schools.

From all the research and experience I have done with the DIA (dutch impro academy) in 2012 and 2013 I gathered a list of practical exercises (about 45) that I use on my seminars, collective lesson and individual lessons.

The result is that ILS is a concrete, real system of learning music through free improvisation.
