The Mainstream Soloist

Other Means

Mainly this chapter is referring to sound. Every instrument provides it's own possibilities concerning that. I'm sure, I don't have to tell most keyboarders about this topic. But not every pianist is aware for instance, that the lid of his instrument can be opened and then the strings are playable directly without using the hammers of the mechanics. Thus: take your instrument and subdue them to sound creation experiments that you never dreamed of before. Setting your guitar aflame on stage or smashing amps like Jimi Hendrix - a potential without doubt:) But I was thinking of less expensive options here of course:) To everyone, who ever had the chance to listen to completely freely impovised jazz or "New classic music" like György Ligeti - you can get many stunning ideas there if you don't have your own ones. Alongside sound there's another aspect too  that sould not be underestimated: Movement by moving on stage I surely could write a book about that topic - and there are many written by specialists. Instead of that I give you two pragmatic recommendations here: - oberserve actors, politicians and other public performers closely - go and rent, borrow or buy a video camera, then record your performance on stage and in your rehearsal room, then judge what you have to keep and what has to be changed of your habits.
