  2. @robbieGGG Ha. Thanks! Although I hope it was clear that I don't really think in terms of chord/scale relationships...

  4. @robbieGGG Well, for me it's about sound and space. It might take time to tweet but I'll try to explain...

    @robbieGGG For me it's about the balancing the sounds in space. So one note could be the thing; or a melody based on a scale; or a rhythm...

    @robbieGGG but it is important for me that that sound expresses what I want/need to express at that time in the music.

    @robbieGGG you could do it with a melody; but you could use something else. It depends on your language.

    @robbieGGG and partly, the language that others are using around me. But to do that you have to want to know about sound.

  6. @robbieGGG but if one says that the scale must be confined by the chord I feel there's a lot of layers that a musician could miss out on.

    @robbieGGG like, when I listen to Ellington at the piano. Sometimes he'll just play a sonority (chord is too narrow): and it's RIGHT.

  8. @robbieGGG Yep. Also Hale Smith's "I love music", played by Ahmad Jamal. And improv. electronica. Not melodies, but appropriate sound.
