Example 2. Underworld, “Cups”

The three parts of the written example represent the three phases discussed in paragraph 9:

  1. The entrances of the synthesizer and cymbal patterns (example 2a)
  2. The entrance of the drumbeat, which will sound like a displacement to more “radical” listeners (example 2b)
  3. The confirmation of the displacement by an additional synthesizer pattern (example 2c)

The audio file presents these three phases in order.
