Although Bergonzi does not discuss any relations to twelve-tone techniques, some of his patterns can be considered as one half of a twelve-tone row.
The example above shows intrrvallic most inside i.
He compares their artistic motivation to extend their playing beyond the limitations of functional harmony to their response to contemporary music, favoring those who prefer the dissonant sounds of the music of the twentieth century above the ordered diatonicism of earlier periods. Unfortunately, the implications of the predominant three-ness as a result of the trichord manipulations are not given attention in his book.
Treating the hexatonic scales as separate objects risks a reduction of not only the accessibility but also the effectiveness of this method. The next example deals with the dominant seventh sus4 chord. These rows are constructed with the so-called steering trichords that are found by grouping the first notes of the trichords in the basic row. The first is about the direction of the half-note coupling: The research results provide comprehensive insights into compositional and improvisational processes in jazz, and offer materials that can be useful for the personal artistic development of jazz practitioners, including musicians, composers, and educators.

This triad pair creates an ambiguous tonality. The Modern Sound, Walt Weiskopf. Feel free to recommend similar pieces if you liked this piece, or alternatives if you didn’t. You will find yourself suddenly sounding much more hip and “modern” with this technique, and yet it is fairly easy to understand. Weiskopf discusses examples of a large number of triad pairs that are derived from the major and minor scales, the diminished, whole tone and augmented scales and the application of his method on polychords.
Instead of the latter, he uses traditional tonal terminology such as first and second inversions of the triad. Examples from my compendium of generative patterns from the Tone Clock, discussed in subchapter 4.
Practice freely combining the various transpositions and rotations [rotation, transposition]. The adding of extra notes to Bm and A in fact turns the triads into tetrachords. Walt’s book is excellent.
Intervallic Improvisation: The Modern Sound
Recording artist and master improviser, Walt Weiskopf, presents the simple technique of “triad pairs” using only two triads to create long, exciting phrases for all improvisers.
Moreover, the student is advised to use his method creatively and to not limit himself exclusively to the twelve-tone system, because, according to O’Gallagher, any combination of tri-chords can generate a musically valid statement without necessarily using a twelve-tone row.
It is hard to cut my roots in chord-scale improvisation. For the coupling of his triads, Garzone improvissation uses minor seconds. But the simplicity of this approach is also deceptive. The connections between the trichord sets are made by using improvisatikn next closest neighboring tone and continuing the direction of the line.
Therefore these steps outside the pre-given chords should always go hand in hand with patient and conscious ear training. Thus, apart from my own practical experiences with the wriskopf methods I have noticed how they have inspired my students to add them to their existing skills.
Less experienced students might yet be confused by the quite strict playing rules as to the transposition, inversion and permutations of the four diatonic triads on the one hand, and the absence of any theory of its harmonic implications on the other. Liebman expresses that an exploratory attitude in his students is crucial. Originally Posted by TMadness The following applications of trichords and rows in a tonal context are examples of operations that quickly became part weisopf my personal improvisational language.
The intense concentration this process requires sometimes results in a feeling of meditation.

To create a music list, please sign in. This Buy It Now listing has ended. The act of composing is merely mentioned as a pedagogical weisokpf to learn to apply the trichords, their combinations and their variations.
Thus, at first sight, there are no intended intervaplic of twelve-tone theory or operations in his method. His most obvious ordering principle is that all triads should be ordered at distances of minor seconds, but he does not apply this strictly either.
Weiskop this product’s difficulty level: The first starts with the smaller interval followed by the larger interval. First, he superimposes single trichords as chord voicings over all 12 tones as bass notes and attributes the appropriate harmonic qualities as chord symbols to each of them.
The same with second rotation trichords [rotation, transposition]. Concerning the phrasing of his triad combinations Bergonzi also manages to create more diversity than Weiskopf It isn’t about chord substitution per se but it describes and lists triad pairs that fit most chord shapes. Used to contact you regarding your review. The notes in the original melody that conflict with the new accompanying chords are crossed. His model does not specify the intervals between the trichords that result from his triad operations.
The second example is my trichord analysis of the theme. We cannot post your review if it violates these guidelines. Just as Weiskopf, they are able to precisely define the relationships between their operations and the underlying chord structures.
Working with his exercises would enable a musician to recognize the distinct sound of each tri-chord and its corresponding row in the same way he recognizes harmonies from major and minor scales.
Below the staff are the triad combinations that according to Bergonzi refer to these chords.
