"Just play" tries to close a gap between the improvisation schools often simple and orientated to Cadence models based on the one hand and very complex, most classical schools (Dupré) to conservatories.
“Just play! An invitation to improvisation” uses five musical parameters of meter and rhythm, melody, harmony, timbre and dynamics, which are explained in more detail using handle images and opened up for the practice.
The improvisation requires a precise plot as a screenplay (storytelling). Examples of Dupré, Fleury and Tournemire or registrations to Cochereau, Leguay and others is about the sound concepts for improvisational ideas. The aim is the development of voltage to keep - against each improvisation routine open.
"Just play” gives numerous music examples and the analysis and playback of compositions/improvisations by André Fleury, Marcel Dupré, Charles Tournemire along with playback of the main Gregorian themes as further impetus.
