Today, you are a member of… var(x)

Funny thing about variation, members. No matter how hard you try to squeeze fugues from an ever-increasing number of differential tubes, you end up getting some repetition. The unrelenting G Major in the Goldberg Variations, the Shakespeare from a room full of prestidigitating monkeys. And like any good party crasher, variation refuses to allow repetition to keep it from the A-List for too long, winking, nodding, and elbowing its way in there with the confidence of an impresario. What both Variance and Repeating seem to have in common is their pace, a structure that raises more questions than answers to any mind keen enough to detect such generosity. So bang away repeatedly this week members and see how many different sounds show up in your brain bucket.
