Pieces to Play Laura Webster May 17, 2013 Constellation Schools Zacodi Codi a warm-up game from West Africa body into harmony (Band) Perfect for the beginning of the year general, band or chorus Begin with circle simultaneous imitation of gesture and text Add snaps Add names person to the right on the first beat and person to the left on the second beat Add switch all players move to a new spot Play it as an out game if youre not on the beat or have the wrong name, youre out When the player is out, she graduates to picking a card that indicates either playing the call (Zacodi Codi) or the response (improvised two beats in C pentatonic). We will use this concept later for an improvisational section to a standard piece In band give whole band plays Zacodi Codi on tonic and then response in sections then Zacodi Codi on I chord (only use one note) response on V7 chord (only use one note) explore using more than one note in the chord for improvisation decide on melody for the call in the group Also can assign a tricky rhythm you are working on (or in the score) or note or interval to the response Transposition Chart Barry Hartz Sax Horns
