This piece is based on having different sounding rhythms happening at the same time. The first part is improvised trying to keep the movement between E and D with my right thumb and introducing some rhythmical variations with my right index finger. I liked the sound of the scratching as a rhythmical effect so I tried to incorporate it together with the muted thumb in the next part and then adding a melody on top. In the last part (coming back to E and D) I also use my foot to change the feel of the rhythm.
It started out as an exercise for coordination and timing but grew to something that I think is a nice musical idea.
I intended to use this in my examination concert but on stage it never felt like the right moment so it became one tool I didn’t use that particular day.
