Set Theory for Improvisation Ensemble Method free pdf This series of books explores the relationships of post tonal theory to contemporary improvisation. The ensemble method gives examples of applying post tonal theory to contemporary improvisation in the form of etudes. Each etude explores the melodic possibilities using various combinations of note groupings, rhythms, metric level, melodic range and density. There are 12 etudes in each book, one in each key which can be played over a variety of chords. These etudes range from highly diatonic to non-diatonic examples depending on the organization of the material.For all instruments. The "Set Theory Ensemble Book" series examines many aspects of creating melodic lines and chordal accompaniment using various music theory constructs. Each book concentrates on one concept and explores various combinations of note groupings, rhythms, metric level, melodic range and density. There are 12 etudes, one in each key, which can be played over a variety of chords. These etudes range from highly diatonic to non-diatonic examples, depending on the organization of the material. The more diatonic examples occur at the beginning of each book. The chord that you choose to play with each example will determine the relative dissonance. Melodic range will not work for every example on all instruments so octave adjustments will have to be made.The series of books is available in treble and bass clef versions. Keep in mind that every concept explored in the series can be used in composition as well as improvisation. Many students have a hard time hearing these types of melodies. It is highly recommended that you sing these etudes along with the vamp using solfeggio to improve your perception. If you are unsure of how to proceed with this idea it is highly recommended that you check out "Ear Training One Note Complete" and "Fanatic's Guide to Sight Reading and Ear Training" in order to learn contextual ear training.The concepts explored in these books can be used in both a melodic, as well as a harmonic application.This book covers the melodic aspect of only one pitch class set. Some of the harmonic aspects of each pitch class set can be heard in the "Comping Etudes" books. These comping books are written so they can be performed on a piano or guitar. In many cases the examples include a bass note within the etude to facilitate a sense of key center.
