Other pentatonic pieces:
After a week of surprisingly cold weather, the sun finally emerged on the day seven planets were aligned. The newspapers had forewarned us of this special day. I acknowledged whatever significance it was supposed to bring by visiting an esoteric bookshop in town. Next to it was a second hand sheet music shop where I discovered a piano transcription for Greensleeves - by Vaughan Williams.
The first few bars (arpeggio-like scales) led me to this piece.
With only one B flat, I managed to create yet another structure - totally freeing me from the past.
It was the fifth day of the fifth month - and the fifth day of the week. The pentatonic nature of this progression flowed from my pent-up emotions. Yet I couldn't get the beat to go in fifths. Silently it moves. For lack of a better name, I shall call it "Pentamine" as in pantomime.
