MUSIC IMPROVISATION AND COMPOSITION FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

 

“What if…..
At just the right time, just the right people made just the right thing?

What if it come out so right that no matter how hard anybody tried, they could not quite make a thing that was better then the first thing?
It does not happen much, but the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrea RS is one of these things. There is something about this car that feels perfect.”
– Jerry Seinfeld (Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Series 1 Eps 15)

The Players 7 Mode Companions

Question – What are modes?
Answer – Modes are simply the scales that are within a scale, all using the same notes but beginning on a different note. They are the foundation of all music that has ever been written. The Ionian Mode begins on the first note of the scale and is the mode that the vast majority of music uses, regardless of style, genre or form (even if you do not realise it).
There are 7 modes, each starting on a different note of the scale.

The Ionian Mode is the 1st note, the Tonic or Naming Note.
The Dorian Mode is the 2nd note, the SuperTonic.
The Phrygian Mode is the 3rd note, the Mediant.
The Lydian Mode is the 4th note, the SubDominant.
The MixoLydian Mode is the 5th note, the Dominant.
The Aeolian Mode is the 6th note, the SubMediant.
The Locrian Mode is the 7th note, the SubTonic or Leading Note.

Each Mode Companion contains explanatory text with simple charts, easy to follow sheet music and a brief history of that mode.
In the Improv 4 Beginners YouTube playlist and the Improv 4 Players YouTube playlist  we explain and demonstrate Chord Progressions, Chord Inversions, Bass Lines and how to #CreateTheImprovisedLine or your Themes and Melodies.
The Free Music Charts that are used in these video’s are available from this website with our compliments.
