JCM Fundamentals: Improv 4

Fall 2022

Taught By: Johannes Weidenmueller

Section: A

CRN: 9851

Credits: 3

This course is the culmination of Improv 1, 2, and 3. Students will use all of the skills and tools they have developed to explore music more creatively. Students revisit and connect to the tools for expression introduced in Improv 1 through the prioritization of aural and expressive guidance through the music. Students are challenged to engage in unbridled aural improvisation with a more deeply developed understanding of pitch, rhythm, and the delineation of form. Improvisation with less predetermined structures and from different launch points challenges students to perceive form in different ways. Use of extended instrumental techniques around these concepts is encouraged. Graphic scores, words (poetry, lyrics), and student driven launch points will be explored. Students may engage in group projects of uncommon combinations of instruments. Students’ improvisatory projects will be informed by their understanding of how indigenous and colonial cultures converged, American socio/economic structures evolved, and the development of music as entertainment, social justice, and art in the United States. Finally, in pursuit of greater personal expression, this course culminates with the application of the skills developed in this semester to common, tonal forms explored in Improv 1-3. Students completing this course should have a true understanding of the many forms of improvisation which have and continue to take place. This class will be held with instruments in hand. Skills will be developed primarily by ear.
