Music of the Three Andalusias
Friday 27 Sep 2019: Warburg Institute, Woburn Square, London WC1H 0AB

On a rare visit to the UK, musician, writer and teacher Marc Loopuyt comes to the Warburg Institute with a lecture/recital on Muslim, Jewish and Christian music of Medieval Spain, focusing on the instruments the rabab and the oud, and on articulation techniques. Articulation in stringed musical instruments from the East will be put in relation with Paganini's Suonare Parlante, with bird song and the mythical language of the birds.

The evening lecture/recital will be preceded by an afternoon workshop on the practical foundations of traditional mode-based improvisation and ornamentation, engaging with the basics progressively and as a group. Participants will be introduced to basic sequences and rhythmic modes, and to the medieval and Oriental styles of rhythmic scansion; they will then engage as a group in the development of a melody based on the modes. There will be imitation practice on short improvised phrases, and phrasing dialogue, reflections on the conformity to a melodic mode, and progression towards a classification of modes. No prior experience or practice in music is required, but, in keeping with Oriental musical traditions, the workshop as it progresses will respond to the interests and backgrounds of the participants.

Participants are welcome to bring their own instruments - esp. percussion - or just your body and voice.

Workshop: 2.00-4.00pm
Lecture/recital and reception: 5.00-7.00pm

Born in France in 1947, with French, Dutch, English and Caucasian roots, Marc Loopuyt discovered the flamenco guitar via immigrant Spanish workers, and subsequently spent three years in Spain learning how to play it. Interested in the strong "colours" in flamenco singing, he crossed the Mediterranean and settled for nine years in Morocco, learning to play the oud. Attracted by the art of the Turkish master Cinuçen Tanrıkorur, he became his disciple and spent many years travelling and living in Turkey and the Middle East, as well as staying for one year in Azerbaijan with the singer Agha Karim Bey. Marc Loopuyt taught for 25 years in the Music Conservatory of Lyon, and has published, performed and recorded widely.
