Topic: phrase counting , merging and mix points
i love /like and need patterns in music if i want to mentally visualize a track by remix points opportunities.) so i follow the practice of breaking down a track. in phrases so i can combine the track progression by both its phrases and 'knowing the track'. i prefer to practice this by counting and write down each phrase length. (and verify by converting to track length to check the counting)
does everyone do this or am i holding on to much to patterns? without the pattern i cannot 'find' a mixing point, its like dropping the needle somewhere, beatmatch the tracks and then hope for a suitable mix point... not doable for me...
regarding phrases: the ear is deceiving so when i see many phrases or phrases that are imho too different in length, then i tend to merge them if possible: is this uncommon or does it depend on the genre and if so, are all tracks in a genre following a phrase logic?
i took a 125 bpm track of 5m.54s (drop it - camelphat) and ended up with (736beats / 184 bars / 10 phrases with beatlength 0.48s -> came 1.72s short, about 1 bar and vdj
analyzed the track different in bpm so that might explain it.)
i got to:
i simplified it to:
32, 16 24, 8 ,24, 16, 32, 32
32, 16, 24, 8, 20, 20, 32 ,16 ,16
(10, 8 ,9 phrases) as 'progression defining' phrases from different tracks can blend or take over the progression, merging phrases could ease / extend the mix possibilities
or am i applying too much math too the logic of DJing?
