Composing ideas

Write a song using some of the ideas from the structure of Something’s Coming. Try using a similar chord pattern, a change of metre, an ostinato or syncopated and cross rhythms just like the song does. The song could be based on two main ideas – one quiet and tentative using short note values, and the other loud and confident with longer notes. The two ideas should be slightly varied throughout. Can you make use of dynamic and other contrasts?
