[Arrhythmic Techno (7/8)] Dollhead - 2.2.3

I tried making Techno in 7/8.

I used melodic/acid elements to help decode the fucked up time signature, but otherwise, I tried to make it as "techno" as possible.

love this, its great when experiments with different time signatures lead to something cool. Did you have idea's going into this song or did you just set up 7/8 and go for it?

Re: [Arrhythmic Techno (7/8)] Dollhead - 2.2.3

When i 1st listened to this I just didn't hear techno. The 2nd listen through i could see where the influence is, but think that this could be turned more into Industrial, post-punk, EBM, avant-funk, electro, acid house type feel.

My ears are so use to hearing Techno as:
Quote:
most often in common time (4/4), where time is marked with a bass drum on each quarter note pulse, a backbeat played by snare or clap on the second and fourth pulses of the bar, and an open hi-hat sounding every second eighth note.
.

When I think of techno I think of Carl Craig, Derrik May, Kraftwerk, Juan Atkins. This made me think more of Cabaret Voltaire, DAF, Defunk just to name a few.

Not sure if you used reference tracks, or just had a vibe and went for something, but not sure how this would mix with other "techno" records.

Sounds like this is still in the arranging phase, unless you plan to use your existing tracks to create sweeps, transition effects and so on to give the phrase of the song definition.

The patterns become a little to repetitive for my taste. I understand it's meant to be techno, but maybe some filtering to break up the patterns, or chopping them up anything. They just go on for days it feels like.

I think if you revisit this tune you might want to find a few reference track in your bpm that have structure, sound design, and mix ideals similar to what your going for. Once you have those, place them within the project, and reference certain ideals to glue what you have together.

Thanks for sharing.

@ E-Fence
It was the curiosity of seeing what applying elements of techno to an arrhythmic time signature would do.
There are plenty of techno tracks that are split up like "3/8, 3/8, 2/8" (aka the tresillo you hear in cuban dance music, against a 4/4 kick) but in some techno, the kick also hits with this rhythm.

I thought trying 2.2.3 would be a fun and fucked up challenge, and it was!
I don't think there is a way of making 7/8 danceable, but you can get REALLY close.



@ tvmcc.
cheers man, you may have missed the point a bit though.

Possibly. Just offered my thoughts. Apologies if I did miss the point.

I think 7/8 can be danceable it just takes a lot of compositional skill. This is dope, it gets a little too repetitive but I think the sound is there, and you should continue making this kind of rhythm

I like that despite the odd time signature it still has a somehow straight danceable groove and that late night warehouse rave feel to it.
My problem is that I really dislike the kick sound (Personal preference)

Thanks guys.

@ Armaggeddon. agreed, I hate it too.
If I ever do something with this, it will not sound like this.

Re: [Arrhythmic Techno (7/8)] Dollhead - 2.2.3

7/8 is absolutely danceable. what matters is pulse and groove, uneven rhythms are danced to all over the world! this track is danceable too. I'm not an avid techno listener but this definitely fits in my mind what techno aims to do (slow as fuck builds). really interesting concept. I wonder what it could sound like mixed against 4/4 tracks? it feels like certain moments converge if you try to count an even rhythm to it. nice work. but man, that clap though... it's just so damn techno-y
