There’s one particular piece I made up as a kid on the piano that’s still my favorite and I always end up playing it with variations and it’s got a strong Ostinato. I’ll post it one day.
“In music, an ostinato (derived from Italian: “stubborn”, compare English: obstinate) is a motif or phrase which is persistently repeated in the same musical voice.
An ostinato is always a succession of equal sounds, wherein each note always has the same weight or stress. The repeating idea may be a rhythmic pattern, part of a tune, or a complete melody in itself”
Are you ever stubborn, obstinate, repetitive, hammering away until you achieve your goal?
