Conducted Group Improvisation
Using cue cards and a system of hand signals, Christian conducts a large ensemble in “free” improvisation. With two systems at play, including the "number system" and the "free note" system, this fun exercise is easy to learn and duplicate with your student ensembles. Engage in call and response, looping, "musical wrestling", vamps, modal grooves, occasional musical chaos, with a multitude of stylistic applications. Even your students can be taught to “conduct" the improvising ensemble.
