  • STOMP loves to demonstrate how everyday rhythms in our lives can have a powerful musical effect.
  • A fun way to demonstrate these rhythms is to take a basketball and show how it itself can become a musical instrument.
  • Music invites us to invent new combinations of sound.
  • We find ourselves humming or whistling our own tune or tapping a rhythm that we made up.
  • This is called improvisation.
  • Improvisation- spontaneous musical invention
  • Improvisation is usually done within certain boundaries.
  • The improviser might elaborate upon a familiar melody, adding tones and altering rhythms to enhance a particular feeling.
  • You’ll learn more about this in Jazz in Chapter 9.
  • Ostinato- a repeated musical figure
  • Improvisation is an art with many techniques.
  • It is a way of making music a form of direct self-expression.
  • It requires musicians to take chances.
  • Some authorities believe that music improv. Is among the highest forms of human thinking.
