Create and perform a short piece of music, about 30 seconds long, based on a 3:2 polyrhythm.
It may be improvised or composed. You may work with a partner. You may only use your body (hands, voice, feet, etc.) or an instrument that is physically played (i.e. not programmed). It does not need to be complicated. In fact, simple is preferred. But keep in mind the overall form of the piece. Think about repetition and variation, expectation and surprise, tension and release... Use at least 4 variations on the pattern, which should be internalized before improvising, or after composing. examples: - accent 3: x . x . x . |x . X x x . | 2: x . .
