“Like What?” for Jazz Orchestra: A Creative Research in Music Composition

  • Denny Euprasert, Conservatory of Music, Rangsit University, Thailand, Corresponding author, Email: denny@rsu.ac.th

Abstract

Like What? for Jazz Orchestra is creative research in music composition. This project aims to juxtapose different post-bop jazz musical concepts combining upper-structure triads, pentatonic scales, constant structure, irregular pulses, and polyrhythmic texture. It derives from the post-modernism trend with the knowledge to use and combine jazz harmonic and rhythmic tools available through history. The composition was orchestrated for a jazz orchestra, or in other words, a jazz big band. The length of the composition is approximately 7 minutes. The piece was performed by several ensembles such as Siam Jazz Orchestra (Euprasert, 2018), Thailand All-Star Jazz Orchestra (Euprasert, 2017a), Fu Jen Big Band (Euprasert, 2017b), Taipei Jazz Orchestra (Euprasert, 2016), and Ruamsmai National Youth Big Band (Euprasert, 2015). The composition was published by Jazz Education Abroad, USA.
