I Thought I Could Dance
Uploaded on Jul 31, 2017
UPDATE 24 Sepmteber 2017: Slower (playable) tempo. Some minor revisions.
Based on two rhythmic patterns, 3+3+2/16 (arabic "malfouf" rythm, annotaded as 2/4) and 3+3/16 (annotaded as 6/8). I use this to play tricks with the listener, upsetting the obvious 2/4 beat that the composition begins with. In measure 16, the last 2/16 is left out in two patterns yielding a 6/8. In the B section, the last 2/16 is removed every second time yielding a 3+3+2+3+3/16 pattern (7/8), which then becomes accellerated by removing the second 2/16 as well (6/8), rounding up with an incomplete 3+3+2+3 (11/16). Then I return to the A section, modulate to F minor and upset the A theme with 7/8. Then a longer section where I alternate 6/8 and 2/4, letting the listener speed up and slow down with the pulse of the music. And then, back to the B-section again.
It's a little challenge to play, but I actually like this one.
