Songs in Odd Time-Signatures

I thought that I’d might as well make this, seeing a lack in odd time signature songs from users (other than myself).

Basically, just link any works that you’ve made in an odd time signature.

Songs in the time signatures of “3/4” and “6/8” will not count as they are commonly used time signatures. The same goes with 9/8 if the 9/8 pattern is divided into three groups of threes.

I’ll go ahead and post the best one’s I’ve made:



Can’t wait to see what you guys can make. :slight_smile:

I’m not sure if this is the appropriate place to post something like this, but I’m not the judge of that. x:
16 | (Long Loop; 7/4, 9/4, 11/4, 12/4)
20 | (Short Loop; 13/4)

23 | (Long Loop [UNF?]; 2/4, 4/4, 6/4, 7/4, 9/4)

I think that’s all I have in regard to songs with odd-time signatures.

Very nice! Now I have to make something with time signature changes. >.>

You don’t have to. xD
Unless you want to. :b

This is confusing! But it certainly adds a new element to the music. I think it works well with the percussion.

It’s not that confusing once you get the hang of it. Malice’s pieces I can see being confusing to some for the speed and so on, but with slower or more straight-forward odd time signature songs, just try to found the pulse notes (I.E. 8th notes, quarter notes, etc.). The best examples I can give is with Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” which is in 5/4, or Don Ellis’ “Pussy Wiggle Stomp” which is in 7/4 (Where the rhythm/pattern goes (rest) 2 (rest) 4 (rest) 6 7).

Also, working on that song in changing time signatures right now. :stuck_out_tongue:
