1903: Second Go Arounds and Shimmery Tones

Grace talks about starting work on a song. Felicia talks about her composition for the week. They discuss two concerts that they saw together.

Apologies: The de-esser and de-plosive plugins are 10,000km away in Singapore, so all episodes before April may sound a bit harsh! :(

• Wikipedia: Time signature > Simple vs compound

•• Correction: 6/8, 9/8 and 12/8 are all considered compound metres.

We’re not sorry for the detour about scales and modes. If you’re confused, we suggest looking at:

•• Beginners: musictheory.net: Key signatures

•• Not beginners: Wikipedia: Scale (music)

•• Correction: D-flat major and B major do not share the same notes. They share six out of seven notes.
