About this exposition

From the very beginning when Ι started dealing with the modal music and the oral traditions of the Middle East I was so thrilled by the perception of this music as a living organism that evolves through time. This thought inspired me and made me want to get involved with this music in a creative way. Thus, Ι bacame interested in understanding the nature of the modal system of Makam and adopting all those elements that would allow me to express myself through this music. Through this quest, it didn’t take me long to realize that a big part of this expression that I was looking for, personified in this music via the Taksim (non-meter improvisation). Therefore, my goal of my artistic research at Codarts, was on the one hand, to gain a deeper knowledge of this music language regarding the makam-based modal improvisation (Taksim): phrases, motifs, ornaments and structure, and on the other hand, to improve my technical possibilities on the instrument so as to adopt the elements of this language on the violin. After brainstorming and having a number of interesting discussions, I formed the question that would allow me to achieve this goal. ARTISTIC RESEARCH QUESTION How can I improve my violin performance on Τaksim (non-metric improvisation), by playing, transcribing and analyzing ornaments and phrases of specific taksims on makam Ussak and Hicaz?
