Play me patterns: faster and slower, louder and quieter

Make the changes very obvious at first to help me hear what is happening

  • Tap a beat on a drum that starts slowly and gets faster; how do I react – do I get more excited as the beat gets faster?
  • Stop suddenly; do I seem surprised?
  • Now do the opposite – start fast and get slower, and then stop
  • Do I seem to be waiting for another sound once you have finished?
  • Now try making patterns that get louder or quieter – how do I react to those?
  • Try making similar patterns on different instruments; do I respond in the same way, irrespective of the instrument you are using, or do I respond more strongly to some than others?
  • I may react more strongly if you get faster and louder, or slower and quieter, at the same time
