Hello guys!

I'm new in this space and I wanted to "celebrate" my comeback to music composition with the community Very Happy

This time my main focus is to finalize my projects. I think composers know what I’m talking about Wink (project1, project1_final, project1_new, project1_seriously, ...)
Just get it done and throw it online! Don’t worry, if the core is good you’ll get it in feedbacks, then you can master, refine or whatever.

Anyway, I made a new compo where I tested the waters of TRIPLETS:

called it Highway because I was high when I made it (genius huh ?). Lots of fun!

What do you guys think of triplets in general ? Do you give them a try from time to time or stick to binary ?

I warmly welcome musical/technical critics, so feel free to have a look at my work.

Cheers et bonne journée!
Otedja

Hello otefja, welcome to the forum.

I checked your link ... not bad, the mix is very clean so you know what you are doing there. Also the different sound engineering has some variety and interest.

Generally the term “triplet” applies to taking some articulation which has been established in a composition and dividing it into three. For example, applying three even beats across a 4/4 measure or dividing a quarter note into 3 eight notes instead of two. You did the 2nd example... but by not first establishing to the ear that the quarter note is divided in 2 eight notes the effect of the triplet is lost. Instead, you have (sort of) written a piece in 12/8 time (assuming you have set 4 quarter notes to the measure.)

Nothing wrong with that... but since you are experimenting... good to learn something from the experiment.

I believe you did what you intended and are merely using the term “Triplet” incorrectly.

If in fact you really want to explore triplets Then take a piece written in 4/4 time and after 8 measures start alternating every other measure by dividing the quarter note into 3 instead of 2 so that the ear can compare the different divisions of the quarter notes. It’s the juxtaposition that creates the triplet effect.

If instead you intend to explore meters that are divided into 3 (such as 3/4 time or 6/8 time) instead of 4 ( such as 2/2 time or 4/4 time) then your piece is sort of doing that... except... I’m guessing how you got there was by using the software to apply a “triplet” to every quarter note.... not the right approach if you really want to understand the difference.

Set your meter for 6/8 time and experiment by alternating between eight note and dotted quarter note articulations and rests. A whole new world of rhythm will open up to!

Have fun! 😎
