Exploring different ratios by reversing the clock settings

A video playlist on the topic of different settings, ratios used in System 50:50.

 

  • The basic offer in System 50:50 for a piece that lalsts 20 minutes is 10 minutes tacet, 10 minutes freeplay.
  • This could also be described as a ratio of 1:1
  • We can if we wish to, change the clock settings or the clock ratios, so in this example of a 20 minute piece the settings could be 12 minutes tactet and 8 minutes freeplay
  • We can then play two pieces, with the settings reversed
    • Piece 1 - 12 minutes tacet : 8 minutes freeplay = The total duration of the piece is 20 minutes
    • Piece 2 - 8 minutes tacet : 12 minutes freeplay = The total duration of the piece is 20 minutes
  • When we play the two pieces together, we may:
    • hear the different ratios or relationships of freeplay to obligated silence
    • feel the  different ratios or relationships of freeplay to obligated silence
  • to be continued
