Exploring a Single Pattern – KaarLeek

This composition got started when I was sorting through my “ideas” folder and came up to an interesting rhythm made with beatstep pro.

For the musos – the rhythm was just 1/16 shorter than 7/8 and because of that it started shifting against the basic pulse.
I decided to base an entire composition around that. You can hear the 13/16 pattern mostly in the kick drum, but occasionally on the hi-hat, snare and other instruments.

There’s still Chapman Stick throughout the piece, more recognizably in the crazier part in the second half.
