Improvising Workshop
Saturday June 25, 2022  1pm - 3pm (2 Hours )
Music Workshop / Class

Presented by Music In Communities Cooperative

Composer/improviser Phillip Greenlief is visiting from California and performing with guitarist Sam Wilson. He will conduct a workshop introducing several of his open scores (compositions for improvisers) and members of the Stranger Still ensemble will perform the pieces as a demonstration. There will be time at the end of the workshop for interested participants to play Phillip's scores as well, while he conducts, ending with a discussion.

What Philip says about his Map Scores, "i began creating MAP SCORES for the 2+2 project with jon raskin in 2005 and have since created numerous works for solo and ensembles. these piece feel like the some of the first works where i was striking out without a mind to satisfy any particular genre, but was looking for something that could be played with just a quick talk-through before the concert - something that leaves a lot of space for improvising, but also gives some specific compositional elements to create the kind of ensemble unity that can go missing in improvised music.

The works have evolved a great deal over the past 14 years, and I have tried in recent years to create compositions that can work with multi-disciplinary platforms.

Over the past few years these works have been the centerpieces of workshops that I teach, that I refer to as composing for improvisers"
