Improv Music Rehearsal With Freestyle Repertory Theatre
I’ve been performing woith Freestyle Repertory Theatre for over a decade, and we do some great improv work. While the other NYC schools are concerning themselves with “clever”, we’re working on storyline. Actual Stories, people.
But today, we used some of that “Go For It!” attitude and sat around a piano making up songs. We started simply, and didn’t try to make lyrics. We just sang “Lalalala” so we could get a feel for the way we each created music.
Then we “foiled” each other by creating sounds that mimicked the others, but added to it musically.
Eventually, we added lyrics. characters, and STORYLINES so that we were doing counterpoint, and repeated phrases.
And then my head hurt.
But I look forward to when an audience gets to hear it!
