The problem is that there's a LOT of space between 3 and 5. Things that are
harmonic and rhythemic, and yet, not "song oriented". Most of my looping
somewhere in there. I don't plan out songs, it's freely improvised, yet,
atonal, and it generally develops a rhythm, but it never ends up sounding
pop song, ABABCAB, or whatever.
