An Authoritative Voice on the Beats of Tears

Gerald Edwards III -The Dump

I'm not sure what is so dramatic about a heavy whole note dropped on the first beat of a measure to echo: 1... I'm not sure what is so compelling about the momentum of a fourth beat swinging into the first: 1-2-3-4 and 1. I'm not sure what is so intense about a note held across a measure and then again, again, and again with a breath on the four: 2-3-4-1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4-1-2-3. But I'm glad they mean so much more in ears than in writing.
