Groove String Orchestra
Orchestra project for young students (6-35 participants)
This is not your ordinary string orchestra – we will be stewing up a whole new soup with some unusual ingredients. On the menu: special arrangements of classic rock, pop and jazz favorites (e.g. by Jimi Hendrix, ABBA, the Beatles, the Police, the Eurythmics, etc.). Seasoned to taste with rhythm games, groove exercises, body percussion and a pinch of improvisation.
Groovebowing, walking bass bowing, swing phrasing, chopping, slaps, blue notes, ghost notes, percussion etc.
What is groove? Percieving rhythm, groove concepts („grumbling“, laid back, groove in polyphony, etc.)
Playing as an Ensemble & Phrasing:
playing as a section, groove & counterpoint, kicks, accents, bowings, etc.
Swing notation, common big band phrasing signs, notation of groovebowing & chopping, etc.
