Nobody? Well, not often asked for... (today we tried it there at the museum, and so we do at the 25.08.2007, 13h, here at Duesseldorf, Germany)
I could make a few "amusing" suggestions here but since i'm actually rather interested in this i'm going to play it straight:Ruediger Kramer said:i´m invited to play at the vernissage of an large exhibition with greek antiques (the death of pan).
i have a few transcriptions of ancient greek music for the aulos, 5/8 will be a difficult thing for me...
then i´ll play an improvisation in g-minor (or a-blues).
1. the ancient greek music, i´ll play, is in the scale of Bb minor, D major (transciptions). the improvisation, i´ll play, is in the hypolydian-key (like a-blues or g-minor).RootyTootoot said:...i'm actually rather interested in this i'm going to play it straight:
What scale is the "ancient greek music" using? What is its source? Will there be anything else happening while you are playing? Will you be playing in the same space that the art is displayed? Is there a web link to the exhibition? I have reasons for these questions and if you've got time to reply that would be great. All the best.
thank you very much for your good hints...Brendan Muse said:Do lots of bends. I'd be playing aulos music on a soprano, myself. Or two sopranos if you can manage it. Also, keep in mind that there might very well be quarter tones, so be ready to play those on the fly. If there are third tones, play them like quarter. Nobody used to Western music will be able to hear the difference anyway.
As a side note, Adam West's book on Ancient Greek music is a good starting place if you're curious about all this.
yes, i understand: everybody says it sounds very ancient (not like blues).RootyTootoot said:I would have thought that the danger would lie in creating an improvisation that is too much like a 20th century blues. This might be too comfortable for the listeners and would put the art (possibly??) in a slightly misleading context. Are these issues you had to consider in you preparations? Please understand i'm asking because I'm interested in your project rather than because I'd like to pick holes in it!! All the best.
thanks, but that is not the thing i´m working on...kavala said:This might give you some ideas.
Not strictly Greek, but was a live concert in Greece.
A lot of Greek music is similar however.
The music in the background of these clips is Greek.
