about

Willie Waldman Project

What is musical improvisation?
In the music industry, improvisation is the art of composing and recording at the same time; that is, it is to invent on the spot! An improvisation can be a harmony, a melody, a solo, a riff, a rhythm, etc.
This art differentiates creative musicians from reproductive musicians. Reproductive musicians are those who only reproduce or perform already-made songs. They usually have technique and good reading, but they are completely restrained musically (dependent on a setlist) and do not know what they are doing, they are just following a cake recipe.
Creative musicians, on the other hand, are not limited to just playing already-made music; they are able to change them, improve them, create new melodies or harmonies automatically. These are musicians who know what they are doing, they are the ones who understand what is behind the chord notation and the notes. They can have musical dialogues.
In short, a musician who knows how to improvise:
Understands what is going on and has immediate ideas;
Easily composes, since he has many tools and resources in mind;
Has a very sharp ear;
Can put his/her own identity in the songs.
