Lakebed of Serpents Janjako

By Brackleforth on March 6, 2016 6:31 am

9/8 time, based on Mela Ramapriya beyond the first 16 measures. Transposition numbers are 1 3 2 1 2 1 2. I used a lot of non chord tones though, just trying to get something finished.
P.S. I've uploaded the second volume of my scale booklets onto the forums. Check it out at your leisure smile

Cool track mate!

Once again, extremely inventive! You are definitely the master of complex time sigs.

Very nice, love it when odd time signatures feel this natural to the music.

Thanks for the scale booklets!

It like the way this develops with some very cool textures coming in.  The "odd" time signature doesn't feel strange at all, which is also cool.

I was hearing the serpents at the end there. If I hadn't been counting, I'd've thought this was 7/8-- has a similar 4/4 but with a stutter at the end feel... which I guess makes sense, just an extra eighth note instead of a missing one. I also dig the exotic scale... can't wait to dig into volume 2!

Thanks! 3/4 and 4/4 are nice as well, I think I might have a weird brain for not using them enough tongue

Thanks Plantrain. Once you find a beat the works, the rest comes easily. And thanks for using the booklets - it makes me happy to see my work on them pay off smile

I have a soft spot for tabla and sitar. They have nice texture smile

Yes, 7/8 and 9/8 are very similar. 9/8 can also be spaced out like three groups of three, which is well suited for a bridge section. The chorus and other parts are like 4/4 with an extra note. Cheers Bob

This one is really cool! I really like the drums that sit around the 1 khz - 800 hz area. I wonder what it would sound like there wasn't a drum keeping time.
