It should be noted that different priority measurements such as TLevel, BLevel, SLevel, ALAP
, and NOO can be used as heuristic values, and the best one should be selected experimentally.
There are three layers to Grand Alap
: cello, voice, and percussion instruments.
In a longer and more elaborate alap
, such as one can hear today in the dhrupad style of North Indian classical music, the octave might be unfolded in several stages, introducing successively higher pitches before the upper octave is reached.(19) Evidence for this more complex process can also be found in Sarngadeva's work.
Announcing that the venue had a 10 o'clock curfew he condensed the alap
, bending and extending silvery notes into convoluted phrases.
Here the author, drawing on his earlier work on dhrupad (the predecessor and classical model for contemporary genres), traces the transformation of early alapa to desi alapti to dhrupad alap
and shows a plausible series of steps by which modern alap
I probably caught Richie with around two-thirds of alap

Each wedge-heeled, flared-loon peach is preceded by a short "invocation", a sequence where Jenkins uncovers the theme of the song, improvising as if he were creating an opening alap

The evolution of the instrumental alap
(surprisingly, the term Miner encountered in the manuals is "jor," which, in present practice, refers to the pulsed section within the entire alap
) is plausibly reconstructed from skeletal notations and written commentary.
