Improvisation

The next series of posts will be a set of improvisations I have titled “Evening Improvisations.”  After the previous improvisation post, I realized that I would like to flex other musical muscles that I do not typically use during liturgies.  I doubt that my church and congregation would appreciate this sort of thing during a liturgy.  That being said, this first of the series is simply based on a couple of pitches which upon reflection resemble something like a 0,1,3,4 set (sets are often unintentional until I realize that I’m using it) and the theoretical harmonic series of a D.  Loosely, of course, as it is an improvisation and my ear plays a big part in the overall progression.

Postscript: I forgot to add that though D as a central pitch from which the material was initially born, it’s really F# that takes central focus.
