Two quick question. While I sit on hold in an attempt to contact
the local branch for the united states post office who's over zealous
carrier claims my residence is vacant and isn't delivering my mail. Rough!

1. Does the speed of a hip hop sound experience influence how much or
how little you like a song?

2. Have you identified in your favorite song similarities in time signature bpms?

All over the place. The crazy bangers are always like 60 bpm and cant be integrated into mixes. Everything else is 86-110

I just read the numbers on serato bc I have no soul/rhythm, but around 80 seems to be good

Experimenting a little with reverse engineering
automated adaptive sound experience time signatures.

Hyper fascinated with the plasticity of sounds on shared spaces.
For example, altering the tempo from beginning, in between,
& the ending points of a song with algorithmic automation.

Tight work for consistently contributing dope rare material yall
amun1ra1ptah | selah | GRMPA.

Using the numbers provided by mcfuck | dR.prOf
we can program the algorithm to follow these reasonable
statements.

1.) 70-87 = -17.
2.) 70+87 = 157.
3.) -17 + 157 = 140
4.) Tempo ratio 140:157.
5.) Beginning point 140 : Ending point 157.

or

1.) 86 - 110 = -24.
2.) 86 + 110 = 196.
3.) -24 + 196 = 172.
4.) Tempo ratio 172 : 196.
5.) Beginning point 172 : Ending point 196.


These numerical commands can be executed by standard digital
audio software transport & tempo automation. Below is a visual
representation demonstrating the automated tempo ratio 140:157 and 172:196
in a 0:00:00:00 - 0:03:28:446 time signature.

140_157_tempo_ratio

172_196_tempo_ratio

Interesting reference listen ardenlofi's
Ring of Gyges 2.6 algorithmic adaptive tempo signature.

Thanks for the read & contributions. Peace in.

1. Timing is key to the whole "feel" of the beat. The ancients cadence on their drums are in tune with the rhythm in our heartbeats...on a deep level our bodies react to such timings.

2. I have not

What do those numbers mean? And how was it applied in that ardenlofi beat?

Tempo certainly does influence whether or not I like a song, but I haven't really sat down to analyze my affinities, I just go by the feel, but I suppose they'd average somewhere around 100 bpm.

Tempo does play a big role in defining the intensity of energy in a song, although other things also take part in that, such as patterns in drums and flow, and the relationship between the two (simple 1-2 flow at 120 bpm doesn't feel like triplets at 90bpm or double time at 60 bpm even though the add up the same). I'd say the energy itself is mostly defined by melodies, pitch and voices.

DOOM and Grimm play with tempo in Tick Tick. The effect is disturbing.


Speaking of pulse, De La Soul progressed the tempo in their Nike+ project in accordance to an ideal 45 minute run so that the music matches (or defines) the pace at which you run.
90>95>100>105>115>110>100>115>120>90 (bpm)
See graph at 1 minute mark. It's not an precise depiction of the tempo progression, but the shape matches, which at leasts suggests it's somehow indicative of energy levels. As I said, rhythmic patterns play a role too. Triplets in the central melody of We O.D. bring the intensity up above that of Victory Laps, which is at a higher tempo but doesn't feel like it.

MisterAtoms You're right. Thank you kindly for contributing & providing your perspective.

Porkelin Thanks for the question and compelling insight. When we break it down the numbers
mean the specified changes in tempo throughout a sound experiment from
the beginning point when we first begin to recognize sounds until the ending point.
