music sketch and doodle


music sketch:

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?


Happy Sketching!

Music Sketch



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!
