A boy sits at a piano listening to the notes and how they vibrate with the accompaniment. Gradually, a simple melody forms and he can’t help but keep repeating it.
Repeating melodies are a passion of mine, jam bands that let a melody fill the room for several minutes have inspired a lot of my band’s compositions. I love having patience in letting the listener slowly figure out and reveal the layers and melodic patterns in their mind.
Patterns overlaying in multiple time signatures… when done right, is one of my favorite composition techniques.
