Only a man in a drug rug like that can truly convince you every note works.
Welcome to the Jacob Collier School of It'll Work, Trust Me
He's like Vitalik Buterin in a music world in some kind. Genious genious.
If it doesn't seem like it fits just remember it could be in the mixolydian diminished flying DeLorean mode ;)
I wonder how you and Victor Wooten would sound together… should be a holy mess :D
You need to do something with David Becker!
there are so many apps open in that mac it hurts my brain
should all dissonance have a conclusion?
0:30 ''But then if i went'' You just played part of the sims 1 soundtrack m8 you won't fool me.
Music theory can't make sense ma tune fishows.info/post/dKaXn8W0a27A1sk/videot.html
There is no wrong place to wear a Navajo poncho bought from a New Mexico desert truck stop, there is only the challenge of justifying that Navajo poncho bought from a New Mexico desert truck stop in the right context.
anyone else bothered by the question mark in his OSX dock? kiddiiiiiiiing
The History of Music: Monophony > Polyphony > Homophony > Collierphony.
the mic stand and the mic: yes jacob, use us
looks like young Keanu reeves lol
"Never reject a note from a chord before trying all of the possible solutions to that chord."-Jacob Collier
I have that poncho
This conversation is a lot of sus.
Context Is the answer ... Smart guy
Buy the man a shirt. Clearly not making a living playing bad notes.
"If you played something wrong, you're bad" *"If you played something wrong confidently, it's jazz* *_"If you literally can't play a wrong note you're Jacob Collier"_*
in the past: "this note is bad" > > > > > present (meaning the same thing but pc): "this note is in the wrong context".
Applies to lots of non-musical fields too. (Like most things in music)
I love how this is true to even the artists way back when music was just played without any theory basis but worked beautifully as a whole composition, e.g. Smells Like Teen Spirit.
the elon musk of music
Horizontal and Vertical justification for chord choices. Yes! I love that in singing a part with a group that has a note that holds through tension and is justified or finds resolution. Brilliant explanation. Horizontal & Vertical.
Is George Jacob’s dad or something? Just curious. Weird to have the same last name and just mostly post videos of the other. Honestly curious. Not sure if it’s been addressed somewhere.
Smoke a joint man hahahahahah
Jacob Reminds me a lot of Elon. Same sort of Cadence when explaining things. Must be they’re both on the spectrum? Both doing unbelievable things in their respective fields.
what about harmonious and disharmonious chords?
Your only half of a step away from the right one
He's the Elon Musk of music theory
if it resolves convincingly, then it works. Also, anything would work in passing, if you don't stop on some weak chord. You can justify everything.
Poetry…. It is genuinely accurate. Love this Guy .
I love how he's just so experimental. His courage to try beyond the usual gave him such beautiful gift of music taste.
The real genius shows through in the last few seconds. While his explanation was very good, what it really comes down to is his incredible ability to just hear or feel whether something is “right” or not. Most people cannot just casually create strings of connecting “consequences” to seemingly random sounds. Dude is off the charts
You know, that last thing he said kinda hit different. I am shit at drawing but everyone knows what I drew right of the bat, so that gives me a little confidence that what I am doing it the right path.
This is basically any subject: The more advanced you go, the more you realize that everything you were told was "wrong" at some earlier stage of learning can actually be made correct somehow.
Oh yeah? Let's see your browser history then!
The mic was like this is my only chance to kiss him and I'm not gonna waste it.
This man's fashion is something more people should aspire to.
As a music nerd myself I 100% agree
I'll say it... this guy isn't that good. I'm over it. his fans all think they are musicians. they're nobodies. haha
This reminds me of the old saying in jazz, that in jazz you are only ever a semitone away from a right note. I think that has the same meaning. Any note can be valid, it’s how you make it fit in the context
Why is Keanu Reeves playing piano?? 😅
you said nothing there bud, waste of 2 minutes.
I love how he always looks so cozy
when i taught myself piano and started writing a few 'songs' I thought this too, only when I showed my musical friends it they were so so so confused . Then i stopped.
I felt like a composer for a moment by just listening to this guy. lmao
Bmaj/G7 works perfectly fine - it sounds quite Thelonious Monk
what a genius
@33s did he unsuspectingly play the intro to Stevie Wonder Lately??
Sting on working with Gil Evans: Sting: "I think this note is wrong." Gil: "No, you have to change the note you play *before* this one."
What's the original video?
So I trust ol' Jacob here but in the second annotated example, two of the notes change by the looks of it in the notation. Doesn't that mean that we just have a new chord? We haven't so much as made a note work in a chord as change the chord around the note. I have no formal music training or theory knowledge and this confuses me. Any takers?
I don't know who this guy is, FIshows's just started randomly recommending him to me, but he seems very charismatic and articulate.
Spinal Tap: Jazz is mistakes
One of the greatest creative musicians around ... Harmony is beautiful in the right hands
I believe it was victor Wooten that said there's no such thing as the wrong note
I just thought those wrong chords could fit in well with something scary happening in film
Honestly what would the world be without this guy, such a legend
Very great lesson thank u
The first chord sounded like it was from Legend of Zelda
I love Jacob so much. He brings a new love of music to me
I love how the microphone was more uncomfortable about notes than anybody there.
Sigma piano player rule #264: when someone says you've played a wrong note, simply disagree
Jacob attracts the mic
0:32 this chord ughh so good
1:13 THIS ONE TOOO OMGG
Jazz is stupid! Just play the right notes!
Amazing. Horizontal vs. vertical composition. Where the note is going vs where it is now.
This is what Elon Musk's sons would be like.
Anyone who likes this should read Effortless Mastery by Kenny Werner. He talks a lot about the idea of every note being correct if you make it so
THIS IS CORRECT.
He's not wrong. You can do anything with the music and it's all good, but Music Theory can tell you it can be better.
The 200 dislikes is from the people who haven't found their concequences yet (1:24)
Musician: *Is a genius* Mic Stand: F*** YOU!!!
Ok but have you guys seen the face of the lady reflected in the piano? Terrifying. 0:06
I play the saxophone and the guitare. I'm very bad at music theory the same way i love puzzles but i'm bad at maths. And i mainly play impro over some random backing track and often get a "wrong note". The key is to follow your path ib the song and make that note work, there is always another one right after that will give it sense. I mean that's kind of how free jazz works imo
The Sound Monk has spoken
I swear the note he played at 0:24 is straight from a Ghibli film
wish i was given the gift of music writing
ehhh I'm not feeling it. Sure, if the context is more of creativity, abstraction and entertainment than start switching keys and playing out of key notes, but if the context is listenability and good old musical enjoyment then stay in key pls.
I was always told when I studied Music Recording at uni - 'if it sounds right, it is right'. Don't worry if what you're playing or composing or recording isn't technically 'correct', if it sounds good, use it!
Consequence and moving things forward. Nice.
and that's why I don't like fade outs, especially during a solo. The musician is gonna do something good and plays a note that sounds off, then plays more and it makes sense, but by then you don't hear it anymore. idk maybe i was just enjoying Big Blue arrange version too much.
I can't believe I learned so much from a man wearing my nan's rug
My dad always said, there is no such thing as bad notes, just bad resolves
He's the kid in music class that taught the teacher.
Notes: yes sir Jacob sir whatever you say sir
he sounds like the Elon Musk of Music theory
idk, i think every chord has something, even if you dont put it in motion. It's the transition and the way the audience needs te feel that i think are the needs to make music. Even if it doesnt feel right
The man is a genius
classical music: shoot, I played a wrong note jazz: it's freestyle improvisation
People teaching jazz be like
If you are interested, look for a video called "Practice the chromatic scale (Victor Wooten: Groove Workshop)" to see Victor Wooten explain and teach this same concept. It's great to see how similar the approach is between these two musicians.
