1 Meter and rhythm Iambics Trochaics Anapestics Dactylics End

2 Iambics – de DAH Sand Martins Nest Clare wrote in strict iambic pentameter. This piece is played straight, through a vocoder to remove transients and alongside drum to highlight the stress. The Ballad of Reading Gaol Written in fairly loose iambic tetrameter. Read straight, and transposed into a drum track to highlight the stresses. To Autumn Written in varied iambics. Read in a variety of styles, with a variety of emphases. King Lear A line of iambic pentameter, read straight, sing-song, split (to highlight quantity), drums on stressed. John Clare Oscar Wilde John Keats Shakespeare

3 Oscar Wilde (from The Ballad of Reading Gaol) back Voice only. Voice with drum track. Drum track only.

4 John Clare (from The Sand Martins Nest) Spoken word only. Spoken and drum. Vocoder (transients removed). back

5 John Keats (from To Autumn) Read poetically Read with caesura mid line Read without any stresses Read as prose back

6 William Shakespeare (from King Lear) Spoken word only. Stressed syllables. Unstressed syllables. With drum on stressed. back

7 Trochaics – DAH de Sounds – such as drum patterns, dah de, piano - which spell out Trochaic patterns The Psalm of Life A poem with sections in the somewhat uncommon English meter of the Trochee. Tell me not in mournful numbers. Sounds Longfellow

8 Sounds The drum pattern here plays a 2/4 musical pattern with the stress on the first beat – as in a Trochee. The voice here spells out a trochaic (DAH de). Note how much longer the DAH is… drum voice back

9 Anapestics – de de DAH Sounds produced to highlight the metrical flow of the Anapestic rhythm The Destruction Of Sennacherib A stanza from Lord Byrons typically direct poem The Destruction of Sennacherib. The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold Sounds Byron

10 Sounds The drum pattern here plays out a 3/4 musical bar, with the stress on the last beat: an anapest. The drum here is playing an anapestic as you would hear it spoken: note how different it is the the musical 3/4 time above. drum drum2 back

11 Dactylics Various sounds recorded to highlight the sombre dactylic meter. Ode to the West Wind A line from Shelleys poem treated in various ways to stress different aspects of the meter. Thou on whose stream like the steep skys commotion. Sounds Shelley

12 Sounds The drum pattern here plays a 3/4 musical pattern with the stress on the first beat: a Dactyl. The drum plays a Dactylic line, but as it would be spoken. A less rigid feel to the musical pattern above. drum drum2 back
