Alon Marcus Posted January 31, 2007 Report Share Posted January 31, 2007 The rules of the game are simple. In the first post we choose the thesis. In the second post the antithesis is presented. In the third post you present the synthesis which is the new thesis and the so the game goes on and on. YET, it's a musical game. In the first post the thesis is a piano player. Let's say Bud Powell for example. The first poster puts a link to a video with Bud Powell. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9P-kpOiT6Eo The second post is an antithesis for Bud Powell's video, and you also need to give two reasons why. Let's say you chose Bill Evans as the antithesis 1. Lyrical approach as opposed to Bud Powell's more trumpet like attack. 2. Richer use of left hand chords. And a link to Bill Evans video. The synthesis might be Herbie Hancock. You need to give two reasons why he is a synthesis of Bud Powell and Bill Evans in your ears. And a link to his video.
