This week, I was playing around with the idea of two chords rocking back and fourth to create a texture, and also to introduce the idea of slow movement. Even the melody isn’t very expansive. The first nine notes of the melody are the same note. The real interest comes from the combination of the melody and chordal accompaniment. The two chords begin changing. They get lower and lower before the entire movement freezes. Static notes move upwards before the opening chords come back, and the opening melody brings the piece to a close.
