The Odd Time Signature/Headache thread
If you want to hear music that figuratively impossible to dance or headbang to, this is the place for you!

Yes, I listen to and understand this crap (Blame Banjo, he taught me).

Guess I'm obligated to start it with a band that is perfect for the site, title wise that is:

First movement of this piece (I played it last year) has no time signature at all (lots of great quarter tones and other sound effects), but the second movement, starting at about the 4 minute mark, has time signatures aplenty. The score's included, so enjoy all the 7/32, 9/16, etc.

The last sections gave me a Jazz from Hell feel:

Smile Love Zappa!

"From Hell" is pretty much how I felt when I was learning this piece...it was a lot of work.

Dude's as creepy with a sax as Jian Ghomeshi is with women. This is Colin Stetson.

I once said to Taso, after I had given him a complex drumset odd time solo I composed, "Ignore the bar lines."

Big Grin

I don't know how odd times and headaches become equal. This sounds smooth to me.





As far as I can tell, the stigma around odd times really relates to early British rock musicians who thought they were clever. One band went so far as to include 9/8 in a title.

"Look mum!"

Big Grin

Can you count to five? Yeah?

Odd times should not be a problem. You can phrase 9/8 as 3 8th note triplets. Easy.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Yes, but you're cheating; you've played oddtimes so much your is DNA phrased in 7/8!

I tried to understand the lyrics but one of theBorg's posts is easier to parse.

Glad to see you back Elkster. Here's my contribution.

Dude was tripping. Lemme check, yup, born in Tomsk with parents who were bonkers enough to call him Edison, definitely tripping.
