Series 2 - Ensemble improvisations, from baroque style to tonally free
Exercise 1: Tonal duo improvisation, preparing for baroque style
Flautist responds to an improvised introduction in baroque style which then develops to a prelude.
Exercise 2: Trio musical mind-reading
Singer improvising both music and text, developing a narrative and ambiance, and the flautist remains an active partner. While both are telepathizing melodically, they are also following unrehearsed, changing harmonic progressions from the piano.
Exercise 3: Tonally-free, Classical structures: string quartet, voice and piano
String quartet, singer and pianist in a tonally-free fantasy- prelude. The singer contributes both narrative and ambiance with the string players as equal partners, while the piano provides structure and motivic development.
