Crazy Countdown

Posted: Sun May 20, 2018 10:32 pm



So I decided to take the traditional "Countdown" exercise to a new level tonight.

The sticking is the same as before RRRRRRRR LLLLLLLL RRRRRRR LLLLLLL RRRRRR LLLLLL RRRRR LLLLL RRRR LLLL RRR LLL RR LL R L.

But this time, every time the number hits changes, so does the subdivision that the notes are played at. So the 8s are played at 8th notes, then the 7s are played at triplets, the 6s are played at 16th notes, the 5s are 5lets, the 4s are 6tuplets, the 3s are 7lets, and so forth. I decided to use irrational time signatures to notate this, because the subdivision changes, but you don't finish the pulse, like for example, there is a measure where the subdivision is 7lets, but you only play 6 of them before going to the next beat. Anyway, I thought this would be a fun mental challenge, and have fun with it. Feedback is welcome.
