Thought 134 – Getting Into The Encuentro

…dance. Let’s be clear about something when we say “Musical Interpretation”, this isn’t about stepping on the beat and then stopping at the pauses and starting up again. This is, however, about creating a latticework of ideas that align with what’s happening musically. Most people don’t do that. They dance haphazardly to the music in a random fashion that has a few moments of “hey that worked”, but doesn’t. This is not that. Musical Interpretation means hearing X, doing Y, and then co-creating Z from within some kind of actual structure to enhance what’s happening musically. It means thinking out…

Advice 135 – New York

…we have here on TangoTopics to help with that process. Our Musical Interpretation Series as well as our Musical Studies series which is available to all gold and diamond level subscribers. One last thing: There are several Tango scenes in NYC (Performance/Scenario Tango, Social Tango, Ballroomy Tango, ‘Coolkids’ Tango, Holier-Than-Thou Tango, Outside Tango).

Thought 039 – 3 Parts of Tango Music.

The problem is several fold, which Today’s Tango Thought is not going to drill down into (For the drill down – > See: Teaching Musical Interpretation), however the biggest problem is the method itself, repetition, not to mention the arcane way that music…

Symmetry

two musical pauses) or as a pair of pauses to create the idea of structure in the music.  Like for instance starting out with a Parallel System walk on 2 tracks, and then continuing on after the next Musical Pause up to the next one with that same Parallel System walk, and then at the next Musical Pause engaging Alternation and picking another piece of vocabulary and holding it for another par of pauses. That’s Symmetry as a tool and practice. If you are curious, this idea is fully fleshed out in sections 3 and 4 of the Musical Interpretation series….

Thought 069 – Men That Don’t Study

discussion it becomes a point of view…so let’s change that word to ‘ideas’)….ummm ‘ideas’ on the _______ (fill in one of these words: embrace, walk, vocabulary, musical interpretation) of the dance. May I suggest you study with X or Y instead ?”. Where X or Y is a teacher that you’d highly recommend. On the other hand if they’re giving you the name of a teacher that you highly respect and they’re still failing, suggest a more rigorous private lesson schedule than what they’re doing.
