A "fifth note" is five evenly spaced notes per measure of 4/4, which constitutes a 5:4 polyrhythm. (and when we flip it upside down and put 4 notes in the space of 5, it is a 4:5 polymeter).
In this series, we will look at both the 5:4 polyrhythm, and the 4:5 polymeter.
- Groupings of five's can create a very interesting tension in the rhythmic landscape. Grouping five's as sixteenth notes can give the effect of the time slowing down.
- Groupings of fives as FIFTH NOTES will present a unique sound and subdivision that to the untrained ear can sound very crazy.
