Crawford Young

Italian or French? Two Worlds in Medieval Music and Why Differences Matter

An outline of basic principles relevant to all performers, vocal and instrumental, of 14th/15th c. music. Two cultures, c. 1300-1500, with the most surviving musical manuscripts of Gothic / Humanist Europe helped to define each other’s music. Selected works: Guillaume de Machaut (ballades, including De toutes flours); Francesco Landini (ballate, including Adiu adiu dous dame); Johannes Ciconia (ballate, madrigale); Guillaume Dufay (rondeaux); MS Florence 229 (various).

Medieval improvisation for singers and instrumentalists (B and A) with Peppe Frana and Patrizia Bovi

Suonar danzando Play dancing

for singers and instrumentalists and dancers (B and A) with Placida Staro.

The movement as a formant of sound. With the use of different types of folk dance, the metric-rhythmical stereotypes of the processional forms are experimented and then translated into the instrument. This provides an approach to written sources filtered by the use of a gestural competence in search of the sonority to move and “move” used by tradition.

Repetita iuvant…cum Magistro

Individual Coaching  for instrumentalists and singers (A) who have prepared a piece and want coaching. With Crawford Young

Pifferi, trombette e tamburi; ma dove vanno? Bagpipes, trumpets and drums: but where are they going?

Dancing the sound: experiences from Italian traditions

A repertoire of traditional Apennine dance: the Bolognese Apennines.                                                                                                  For dancers and musicians (B and A) with Placida Staro.            Duration: 8 hours, divided into 3 parts.                                              Ideal continuation of 2018’s course (the childhood repertoires shared on the national territory), this course intends to use the repertoire of the Bolognese Apennines  (manfrine, manfroni, salterello, tresca, trescone) direct heir of the historical repertoire of Italian dance, as a basis for learning which stereotypical correspondence and therefore which significant links are established in the Italian tradition between stimulus sound and motor response. In particular, this year, the processional and collective forms will be dealt with.

Jonathan Bell: Smartvox-Medieval 2019 –Singing medieval music with your smart-phone

SmartVox is a web application dedicated to the apprenticeship of polyphony. It is designed to help musicians of all levels (from children/beginners to professional opera performer) to sing together in tune. It proved to be particularly useful with unfamiliar idioms (such as early polyphony, or contemporary microtonal music), or in productions scheduled with little rehearsal time.  Developed at Ircam by Jonathan Bell and Benjamin Matuszewski, SmartVox owes its realization to a long research process and generous support from the French medieval women vocal ensemble De Caelis. Jonathan bell, composer, is currently research associate with PRISM-CNRS lab in Marseille, and resident at Casa de Velasquez, as a member of French academy in Madrid.
