>Policemen swear to god

But why?


Okay guys, I have a question for any musicians or people who are good at maths (ideally both).

I was trying to figure out a metric modulation in the song Ancient Temperament by Eidola. The first section (approx 2:58 in the video) is in 6/8, and it then goes into a section in 4/4 . However, if you keep tapping the 8th notes from the previous time signature you end up with a 3/2 polyrhythm, which means that there is not only a time sig change but a tempo change. What's more, if you clap that 3/2 polyrhythm through the 4/4 section, you will find that it changes back to 6/8 at the previous tempo (around 3:28), and you're then clapping 8th notes as you were before.

I managed to figure out that if the first section in 6/8 is at 90bpm, then next in 4/4 must be 126bpm. The problem is… I have no idea how I managed to figure that out. I've double checked my maths, and I did the sums wrong, but somehow still ended up blundering into the correct answer.

I can also even tell you that you could play half note triplets in 4/4 at 225bpm and get the same pulse, but again, I have no idea how I managed to figure that out. I've been puzzling over this since just after I figured it out the first time around, and I can't even understand how I came to the conclusions I came to.

How would you go about figuring out this tempo change, /music/?


compound times like 6/8 are actually 2/4 divided by triplets.
By your description you could write down the whole song as 12/8 and have some passages where all the notes are dotted and have passages where a lines plays a rhythm with all the notes dotted against another where all the notes are triplets.


True, but it's more of a feel thing. For instance, the verse is divided up between bars of 5/8, 6/8 and 3/4. The tempo is the same between the bars of 6/8 and 3/4 so there is no polyrhythmic sillyness, but the drum pattern changes so that the snare hits on the "and" (1 and 2 and 3 and), so whilst you can count it as 6/8, it's not a very accurate description.

Besides which, I don't think this solution solves for the added tempo change in the section I described.


For what it's worth, I have an easier way of explaining this now.

As you can see in pic rel, the strumming pattern of the section in 6/8, if divided up correctly, matches the tempo of the next section in 4/4. All you have to do is bring the pule forwards an 8th note so that instead of dividing into 2x3s, it divides into 4 sets of an 8th note plus a 16th note (4*1.5).

From there, it should be much easier to figure out the acual bpm tempo change in future.

As an aside, that rhythmic pattern is the same as one used by Roger Taylor from Queen in a lot of their songs. For example, you could quite easily put the rock section of Bohemian Rhapsody in 6/8 if you wanted to and it would still work.

I heard of them on NPR when the first album was out. ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯

I saw them for free on The Jimmy Kimmel show back in 2007.

But yeah you're right they are very British. I think I wanted to live in Britain back then. Glad I never I never moved there.

I was just thinking wanting to move to Britain/Sheffield because of being an Arctic Monkeys fan is like all the Euro Wu Tang fans that want to live in Long Island lol. I didn't actually want to move there because of them but still.

I was into a couple brit artists back then.
Dizee Rascal

Was into dubstep before Skrillex-step became a thing(I met Skrillex one time at the Glendale Galleria). Was into Jungle like Conquering Lion.

These days the only Brit band I'm into is Average White Band. Sage you need to return to your Scottish roots and make some Blue Eyed Soul.

Snow monkey. Snow ape. It's a slur for white people.

Wow, weeb music getting more modern metalcore. I like that development. I am really tired of many anime soundtracks being generic pop music or pop rock.

Does anyone else not here the bass in most songs that are supposed to contain bass? Am I retarded or something?
6 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


You can't hear the bass that much because it's mixed pretty low and it's just doubling up the lead guitar.


To add, that's why more sophisticated music uses techniques like counterpoint and etc.


Notice how the different rhythmic elements only line up sometimes on the bass notes. The bass also occasionally plays different improvisations and melodies in the empty spaces.


I can hear it pretty clearly, but it doesn't really stand out in the mix unless you listen for it since it's just doubling the root note of the guitar chords. To an average listener it probably just sounds like guitar.


Ok, OP here, I now know why. When I heard what I think is the "Guitar" its actually the sound of the Guitar and Bass combined. They basically act as one instrument.

An examples is the song Bitchin' Camaro, they just play the first string for major barre chords, the second string for minor barre chords, on the same fret as the chord.

The merry brown hares came a-leaping
Over the crest of the hill
Where the clover and corn lay a-sleeping
Under the moonlight so still
Leaping so late and so early
'Till under their bite and their tread
The swedes and the wheat and the barley
Lay cankered and trampled and dead

A poacher's poor widow sat sighing
On the side of the moss-patterned bank
Where under the gloom of the fir-woods
One acre of ground laying rank
She watched over barely grown clover
Where rabbit or hare never ran

While in the merry month of May, from me home I started
Left the girls of Tuam so sad and broken hearted
Saluted father dear, kissed me darling mother
Drank a pint of beer, me grief and tears to smother

Then off to reap the corn, leave where I was born
Cut a stout black thorn to banish ghosts and goblins
Bought a pair of brogues rattling o'er the bogs
And fright'ning all the dogs on the rocky road to Dublin

One, two, three, four, five,
Hunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky road
All the way to Dublin, whack follol de rah

In Mullingar that night I rested limbs so weary

Ты лети с дороги, птица,
Зверь, с дороги уходи!
Видишь, облако клубится,
Кони мчатся впереди!
И с налета, с поворота,
По цепи врагов густой
Застрочит из пулемета
Пулеметчик молодой.

Эх, тачанка-ростовчанка,
Наша гордость и краса,
Конармейская тачанка,
Все четыре колеса!
