time signature experimentation

Post by zaplin on 7/1/2014, 8:29 pm

hello ableton addicts Smile

i must say i produce mostly ''minimalish'' techno, so..
my tracks are all 4/4 (obviously) and sometimes, trying to avoid the repetition, i write on odd time bar loops e.x loop of 5 or 9 bars.
trying my way around this past few days I've been experimenting with the time signatures.

I've came across some amazing results combining different time signatures, that can blend with the so familiar 4/4 beat.

what is everybody's thoughts?

my general rule, is know the rules, use them or better, avoid them. BUT...you have to know the basics so you know what to avoid.
i think that if you dont know the rules , you must be a monster of a talent to bring results.


happy to join the community !

What I started doing is keeping it in 4/4 but do everything on 3s and 6s. Or make is so every 3 or 6 have some variance (depending on tempo I guess). But I have thought of using like 3/4 time (really only cuz Zeppelin did songs in 3/4) but never really have actually tried it.

well we gotta find ways to make it interesting.
using time signatures can be very tricky but very easy to create a mess.

final thoughts. experimentation is the key to life Smile

I sometimes make a 6 bar loop instead of the usual 4,8,16 to get that kind of a loopy bouncy sound. And what I mean by bouncy is that the loop starts at more irregular points in the track. For minimalistic techno and such this works really well. I produce progressive trance and other various forms of electronic music (I try not to tie myself to genres) and i find this technique to work really well with my arpeggiated sounds, as I love the repetitive aspect of the music and love the way you can make a simple loop just keep rolling in the mix without getting boring.
