Welcome to the masterclass
Jacob warmly welcomes you and makes you warm up your voice before getting to the heart of the matter.
By the way, at the end of the session, Jacob insists on the fact that everyone followed him without him having to talk. By using only the signs, he succeeded to make his audience participate. It represents somehow the universality of musical language.
Here, Jacob shares with you his vision of harmony. He talks about major and minor triads, 1st and 2nd inversion, the dominant seventh chord, plagal cadences among other notions.
He interacts with the audience, answering questions and pick up to ideas to go further and address other concepts such as : the correlation between harmonic series and rhythm; leading us to the second part of this masterclass.
This second and last part of Jacob Collier masterclass is about rhythm. Jacob talks about the different dimensions and effects of rhythm: the gravity, the space, the gap, the tension… He uses computer music to illustrate his statements.
Similarly to the first part, Jacob takes times to answer questions regarding rhythm but also broader topics.
