Oud in Eastern Mediterranean Modal Music - FULL

with Giannis Koutis

  • Byzantine, Turkish
  • Oud
  • English

Description

This course will explore Eastern Mediterranean modal music, as expressed on the oud. Our primary material will be the classical repertoire of the Ottoman period, which flowered from the interaction among the nationalities who lived under the umbrella of the Empire, evolving further an already existing musical language, rich in color and potential. This language is founded on melodic development, at both the compositional and improvisational levels.  We will emphasize the techniques of the oud, the interpretation of selected repertoire in fundamental makams (modes), while also introducing the concept of taksim (rule-based melodic improvisation) and its components structure, phraseology, and development. We will pay particular attention to both the ways of studying this genre and the analysis of melodic phrases of the selected compositions.  Registration includes access to video recordings of all classes.
