Dynamics in the context of your instrument and in the context of your band, has quite a direct relationship to the sound of the band. This is where it all comes together in a chain of events: Good individual dynamics lead to good band dynamics; and good band dynamics lead to a good sound – the band’s sound. Continue reading “Dynamics Explained: in a Sound Context”
Continuing from my previous tutorial on dynamics, in the context of your instrument, this my attempt at explaining dynamics in a band’s context. This will help you sound good in a band setting as, you will not only understand where to fit in (and where not to), but also by how much. Continue reading “Dynamics (music) Explained: Band Context”
The application of dynamics may well be the most misunderstood and therefore neglected aspect of a performance, especially here in the Maldives.
This article was inspired by a comment from Faya. Hence, this is the first part of a series of tutorials, in my attempt to explain dynamics in the contexts of:
- Instrument Context (individual dynamics)
- Band Context
- Sound Context
And finally, how the three contexts are inter-related. Continue reading “Dynamics Explained: Instrument Context”
