HENRI AGNEL

PURPOSE

Rather than studying a particular repertoire, I propose to work on musical principles that we find in the music of the learned, popular and medieval European traditions of the “Greater Mediterranean”: from Northern India to Scandinavia.

You will not only be a performer but also a creator ”Composer”.

Solo or group, you will create endless spontaneous music. You will know how to improvise on existing themes and you will be able to compose your own works.

GENERAL CONTENT

> The study of Modes
The scale becomes fashionable when it has two main notes «Finalis and Tonal center» which gives it its «Ethos»: its character, its feeling. Western and Eastern Modes. How to play with?

> The study of Rhythms
Work on the two families of rhythms: rhythms imitating nature and mathematical, geometrical, symmetrical and asymmetrical rhythms.

> Improvisation
Arrhythmic melodic improvisation: prelude (Taqsim, Alap).
Rhythmic melodic improvisation on a rhythm.
Arrhythmic melodic improvisation on a rhythm.
Rhythmic improvisation on percussion. Solo or in accompaniment

This work is easy to access, because it makes a lot of sense. You can practice in a very simple way and you can complicate infinitely.

TERMS OF PARTICIPATION

> It is open to all melodic or percussion instruments, traditional or modern, and to voices.

There is no age limit but it is preferable to master sufficiently the technique of your instrument or your voice to take advantage of the courses.
