20. – 21. October 2018, Facilitator: Alan Bern

Present Time Composition – workshop with Alan Bern

Present Time Composition © (PTC) is a special approach to improvised music developed by Alan Bern. Music created with PTC combines the spontaneity of free jazz with the structural clarity of composed music. In a step-by-step process that is literally consciousness-raising, musicians learn to recognize and act on their pre-musical impulses, then, with this knowledge in hand, to develop more and more complex musical structures while always remaining anchored to the level of impulse. The focus in this class will be on using PTC to create innovative form and texture. Prerequisite: successful participation in a PTC1 class with Alan Bern in Berlin or Weimar.
