Music Seminar with Efrén López

Cyprus : Music Seminar with  Efrén López

The "Pyrinas" Artist Collective and the Embassy of Spain in Cyprus present the composer and multi-instrumentalist Efrén López to lead the music seminar:

COMPOSING, ARRANGING AND IMPROVISING IN MODAL MUSICS OF THE EAST

The goal of this workshop is the experimentation within the field of the so-called "Modal music", which uses melody as an expressive medium and bases its structure on certain very specific and defined scales, norms and aesthetics of motion and ornamentation.

For that reason, we analyze pieces belonging to several traditions which use those modal systems: Greek, Turkish, Iranian, Arabic, Azeri, Indian and Afghan music, both in their melodic and rhythmical aspects. Departing from the analysis of all of this material we can create our own compositions, arrangements and improvisations, using particular intervals, odd meter rhythms and other elements not habitual in the traditions of Western Europe.

The basic elements that we will work on are the following:
- Introduction to Turkish Makam, closely related to the Arabic Maqam, the Persian Dastgah and the Byzantine Echos, analyzing basic and more complex modes.
- Introduction to the Indian rhythmical term "Tala".
- Introduction to the "Raga" modal system as used primarily in India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
