Default From Quintuple and Triple to odd, compound, fractional and other uncommon time signatures

As the title suggests, post, discuss and enjoy the music bound by the aforementioned restrictions.

The Ocean (varies between 4/4 and 7/8 and goes into a shuffle that I think might be 11/8? Need to check.)
Spoiler:


King Crimson - Discipline. There's at least five different time signatures throughout this song.

I fucking love this thread by the way.

it starts with a bit of cookie cutter weirdo fluff but then settles into an interesting and complex 4/4 at 10:33 and really kicks off for a while i wish more songs would sport 4/4, really got a flavour that one.

this is badass:

I'd say the purpose of this thread was to find enjoyable works in uncommon formats and 4/4 is as standard as standard can go . I like the bass so you are absolved .

Also it would be hypocritical of me to try to argue about finding beauty in oddity if I couldn't always tell what time signature is being played and I can't, I can only vouch for some I could check myself or found reliable sources for.

Small addition.
Spoiler:
From 2:15, whole piece is great too.
Many Serbian and Bulgarian folk songs have complex signatures.

I know this CD, but forgot it existed. It's a mix of Gypsy, Polish Highland and Balkan/Romanian folk music, very energetic and well done.

This is actually the piece that made me appreciate Kayah as a singer and appreciate the whole potential folk infractions/collaborations and genius of borrowing ideas and of Bregovic himself in this.
Spoiler:

It seems much of the central european folk music relies on syncopation.

Pattern free and yet they only scramble the pairs. It's more of an analysis of typical music than attempted pattern free piece. They raise valid points though, so kudos for mathematics.

This is very strong, as expected . So what happens here is that there's a bit of recursion going on. Starts off with a normal 4/4, then adds 2/4 with every repetition. Gives it a syncopated effect and a bit of a waltzy formula.

Thank you for posting these gems. It's certainly something I've had very little contact with and wouldn't have found it on my own. I think it's a culture I should spend more time exploring.

Here's a very engaging piece with atypical ideas:
6/8 from 4:40, the old castle
then mostly shifts around from 2/4, 5/4 to 6/4 and so on.
Spoiler:

Here's a more popular Ravel orchestration of it for those preferring richer sound:

Novelty at any point. Irrational time signature:

It's one thing I was always curious to know, how do you measure time signatures? Identifying a waltz or march is obvious, but just taking an example from the thread, what is 11/8?

Well, whatever time signature this is, it certainly makes it hard to count to 4.

Sounds like it's in 9/4. 8/8 + 10/8 notes. Or you could think of it as one quarter note after every two full note measures.
