I was shocked listening to some kind of canon from the Renaissance. They use polyrhythm extensively.
So I tried... This little canon works this way:
Two parts (8 + 8 measures).
The middle voice and the bottom voice are in 5/4. The middle runs twice faster.
The upper voice is the same than the bottom one but in 7/8.
The gaps when one voice finishes earlier than others (very few gaps, indeed) are in free counterpoint.
I like the result, is romantic and impressionistic with mild dissonances.
I just wanted to inform everyone that we updated our forum structure like so:
Board (Announcements & Old Forums)
Upload Your Compositions for Analysis or Feedback (8 upload forums)
Community (Composer's Headquarters, Repertoire, Performance, Advice & Techniques, Off Topic
Competitions & Collaboration (Hall of Fame, Monthly Competitions, Collaborative Works, Challenges, External Competitions)
Technological (Finale & Sibelius Help Desk, Sound Libraries)
Please note that I merged the Ask YC forum with Advice & Techniques. I also am going to add another forum for our notation software, which will be dedicated to sales, bug submissions, and features. I will activate this forum once I am ready for beta testing.
Let me know if you like the new layout, and if it flows better.
Thank you @S.G. Faustmann
Yes I think you are right about the frequencies. Will add more amp in the bass if I publish it commercially. To be honest I asked my studio-guy for more amp in the low frequencies but he thought it was ok, so I didn't insist on that, I had already made him crazy with all that voicing and dynamics this 3 and a half minute piece contains ;)
