AE time signatures

i think a lot of this is subjective, since Ae songs sometimes do not have a distinct feel to me. you can debate all day whether a song is 18/8 or 9/8, it's still the same song with the same feel. it doesn't necessarily have to conform with conventional time signatures. i also do not think sean or rob are too big on traditional rhythmic or harmonic theory.

Just to clarify, I was saying 9/4, not 9/8. This is why Rook's interpretation and my interpretation are technically the same thing. Sorry for the confusion... I was confused for awhile myself. I think I stopped reading at "you're wrong" lol... before I realized we were talking about the exact same thing.

I just wanted to post this little thing that I noticed about Simmm. The second half used to throw me off a little but it's actually in 4/4.

 

ZOUNDS

At some points in the track (I think most of it?) the drum patterns/melodic content are looping for 6 measures instead of the standard 4 and that fucks with the feel significantly. I thought there was some other weirdness but I can't listen at the moment.

It definitely starts with 4/4 but later on it changes. Tho it's hard to count. Might at some point change to 5/4 and later to 6/4

ooh, very true indeed.

 

So I currently have:

0:00 - 4/4

3:26 (just after the short silent moment): 6/4

3:39 (when the first stab is heard): 5/4

4:08 (when the bass drum granular roll enters): 6/4 (or 12/4)

 

For the last 5-6 minutes it looks like it returns to 4/4

Yeah that sounds right. First page of this thread says the same (tsk tsk darreichs!)

 

Good news is I've been listening to Untilted to get there. The Trees is doing the same sort of thing (for a large portion of the track, maybe all?) as the middle '6/4' section of Sublimit....I think of it more as 3 measures of 4/4 rather than two measures of 6/4. That may be technically wrong or technically right, I dunno, but anyway.
