‘SING TO LEARN’ MAKAM SINGING WORKSHOP

Description

Explore the modal system of makam through the practice of singing.

Μakam is the modal system which is used in the Ottoman (Classical Turkish) musical tradition from the 16th century. Starting with a brief historical and social review, we will try to understand the way that this system is structured as well as the basic elements that it consists of. Intervals, modes, ornaments and stylistic elements will be described in a both theoretical and practical level.

As the voice is a point of reference for the musical system of the makam, this workshop focuses on the modal system of makam through the ottoman classical singing repertoire. Breathing and singing techniques will be also treated.

The workshop is beneficial to both singers and instrumentalists. In the old times, as we talk about an oral tradition, it was important for the instrumentalists to be able to vocalize the repertoire and the ornaments in order to play them on the instruments.

Improvisation! The pinnacle of the makam musical tradition! The concept of the form taksim as well as improvisational techniques and methods will be described.

The workshop is given by Duygu Alkan (voice).She completed her bachelor and Master degree on vocal in the Classical Ottoman music in
Ege University and Codarts University, and her research topic is about phrasing and ornamentation in the classical form of taksim (modal
improvisation) and gazel (vocal improvisation).
