“The focus is the constantly changing time signatures, especially the sections in five and seven. The cycle goes from 4 to 5 to 6 to 7, then from 7 to 6 to 5 and ends in 4.”

” It goes from 9 to 7 to 5 (three times) Ends in six, although some people may feel it as a slow four count.”

” Three bars of seven (1231234 subdivision) followed by plus time transitions. Breaks down like this, 3 bars of 7 +2, 3 bars of 7 +3, 3 bars of 7 +4 (and so on) It then reverses itself.”

“A challenging odd meter plus time concept. Three bars of eleven followed by plus time transitions. 11 x 3 (123123123123) 11 x 3 (12123121231212312123) etc…Ends with eight bars of seven vs six then six”
