New theme

Post

Old age, death, impermanence of life in matter, life after body death

Being an incurable optimist, I'd prefer just Rebirth
It wasn't me! (well, actually, it probably was) - apparently now an 'elderly' so maybe I forgot!

I like that theme :idea:

From Wikipedia:
"In the theory of musical form, through-composed music is a continuous, non-sectional, and non-repetitive piece of music. The term is typically used to describe songs, but can also apply to instrumental music."

It's surprisingly hard to do if you're not used to it - especially if with lyrics :help:

I started a no-repeat no-rhythm a cappella right after the stinky tango, it ain't that hard to do. It might become the June contest upload even.

When you say no repeats, what about a drum pattern on what is otherwise non-repeating?
Also, what about chords? Surely at some point you are going to repeat one, so how much of a sequence is regarded as as a repeat?

I'm unlikely to have time for the contest, so I don't want to insert myself too much. But, I'd imagine that accompaniment and other such supporting patterns are probably fair game. It's the primary melodies/foreground-element(s) which usually decide the structure, so I'd say those are what ought to be through-composed (it would be hard to achieve cohesion if everything must be different at all times).
