music sketch and doodle

Hi,

music sketch:
musicsketch_0817a_00_17.mp3

some of my notes:

+38min (0415) reduced to < 12.5

looking at overall pattern of notes can get a sense of the freestyling.

do the notes seem to go in an unpredictable way?

do they cover very different range?

is there potential of a song in the passage?

for short sections how can we simplify part to be able to repeat theme in piano to build upon idea?

---
which parts are memorable?

how many times to listen over freestyle concept to begin identifying themes/sections?

does one part like another part following it?

does a section naturally have variety in tempo and feeling?

---
is there potential to sing to a section?

Music Sketch

Hi,

musicsketch_0816_00_17.mp3

some of my notes on developing this sketch:
-break down of recorded freestyle passage into sections to be developed

20+min reduced to < 6min
does the section tell a story?

knowing when to repeat a section.

if a section is repeatable does it make it more likely to be pleasing to the ear?

how many times should a section be repeated?

should section be repeated right after one another or should there be room in between?

can we identify broad strokes of song to identify beginning middle end /story ?
(its helpful to save backup versions while working)

Happy Sketching!
