Piece of the Week – 5/16/2014

Here’s an interesting piece by one of my old professors. He was kind enough to let us have a listen to the whole recording during one of this theory classes. This, unfortunately, is only the first half of it. He says this interpretation is too slow.

You’ll notice a sudden change to a quick tempo in a 9/8-7/8-5/8-3/8 pattern. After the clip cuts off, the piece goes on to repeat the idea, but with the compound and simple beats inverted, following an 11/8-8/8-5/8-2/8 pattern.
