Thoughts on Homophony and rhythmic complexity in "competition" barbershop arrangements - - previously shared on Facebook.
I woke one night and had this in my head so had to write it down... pretty formal/geeky, but sums up my approach to some extent!
Though difficult to always notate, or eventually perform successfully, when desiring to notate passages to sound polyphonic or just more rhythmically interesting and diverse, for whatever reason, you must strive to arrange the musical elements with a potential culminating performance in mind; where the performer delivers the song with a feeling that it contains primarily four-part homo-rhythmic consonant chords.
I'm humbled to be associated with so many talented musicians throughout the world. I thank you all for being part of my life through music. I know my Heavenly Father has blessed me with certain talents and I hope to keep sharing them. I'm eternally grateful for my Savior Jesus Christ and all He has done for me and my family.
