Example 4. Everything But the Girl, “Compression”

The following excerpts show most of the patterns that occur in “Compression.” They proceed in order from the solo drumbeat that begins the song to a texturally dense passage in the middle. The listener should follow parts a through e down the page as the audio file plays; there are pauses after parts b, c, and d. Please note that some passages have been omitted for the sake of concision.
