It's not in 7/8, it's in 4/4 but what makes it confusing is the so called beat displacement. He opens the hi-hat where you would expect him to play the snare drum. Imagine one measure of the most basic rock beat, eighth notes on hi-hat, snare on 2 and 4. In the second half of the measure (on the 6th note on hi-hat) you open the hi-hat instead hitting the snare, and the snare goes to the last beat in measure. Then you apply that concept to Luke's beat in Durian. I'll try to notate this part of his beat as soon as I have time.Ok ok, so I bump.
I recently went to see Cinematic Orchestra after having been an avid listener of their music for 3 years. Luke Flowers was jaw-dropping-down-and-not-coming-back good.
I wrote a review for the gig on my myspace, if anyone is interested.
The question I have is for CO fans, Luke Flowers lovers,drummers and coinesseurs; is about their song "Durian". (First Album - MOTION)
The funk drop at the coda section of the piece; is that in 7/8 and does anybody know how to notate it or explain it?
I would be very grateful. Thank you
I hope I got this right and would be grateful if someone corrected me if I made a mistake. Also, thanks for reminding me of this song, I really like it. Someone before mentioned Flite. That's definitely the song which influenced the most my playing, it's simply breathtaking.
All the best!
