Most of the anti jazz stuff out there is just based on racism

Regular reminder that repeating Nazi and channer shit when it suits you and promoting people who do the same isn’t radical or revolutionary or even a good way to behave

I liked the phrasing of a line in the intro of one study saying that if a triplet feel was what made something swing, everything in 6/8 would swing

Like it’s right but also wrong since 6/8 isn’t uniformly in 2, but still

Reading academic research about what makes music swing and some of the stuff is cringeworthy but there are some good observations in a couple studies too, like how laying back but staying in time or why it actually works when you even out 8ths when the feel is definitely swung

One of the neatest I found is how there ends up being a specific order of what beats are loose and what are always together that probably makes a bigger difference in whether something swings or not than anything else and explains why I’ve heard recordings of classical music that swing with even 8ths and everything

(Down beats are loose, back beats are tighter, offbeats are always together)

The clarinets sound so fucking good on the Dvorak in that first one btw

I’m no Shostakovich expert, but I think Kirill Gerstein plays this like it’s Mozart and Yuja Wang plays it like it’s supposed to sound

(Same orchestra)

White supremacist music theory to go with the white supremacy culture that permeates music schools.

I wonder if the lick being used to explain Jolopov’s theoretical system was chosen because it’s an exemplar of how the gentrification of jazz has mostly killed it

Also it’s not explicit in the video but most anti-jazz sentiment is based on anti-black racism

Hit that target of practicing clarinet for 40 hours a day by cloning yourself 3x and only practicing for 10 hrs a day

Reading this and thinking about how so perfectly it encapsulates the the things I hate about how music education (especially jazz education) works

Other things too ofc, but it was the first time I recognized so much of the stuff about music ed that just pisses me off in one place
