Jazz has had a profound impact on film music and film music composers since the Golden Era; its tonalities and influences are omnipresent even today. With its strong improvisational core (“realtime composing”) and its extensive vocabulary of unique dissonances and consonances, it’s like a supercharger for our compositional engines. It gives us tons of new colors to play with, hones our structural sensibilities, and frees our creative minds. In this class, we’ll learn what’s behind these cools sounds, and how to begin using them in our work. Williams, Goldsmith, Silvestri… so much of their work is unmistakably Jazz-based; these tools absolutely belong in your tool box. Come and get them!
