SOMEWHERE I have a bounce metronome video set to my favorite, but what I found instead is an experiment: I did it 3.5 yrs ago in 2015.
I’d figured out through a bit of testing that my natural tempo is 270 bpm (I think it was 810 in triples? Don’t remember).
But I wondered if that was also reflected in my natural speaking tempo? I don’t like speaking at length; I’m a typist. But I braved a 12 minute ramble then tested different speeds of background music to see if anything matched up to my speaking tempo.
The beats had to correspond to my pauses, sort of a spoken word rap without knowing the tempo ahead of time or even what I was going to talk about.
Content didn’t matter, just the tempo.
So, it worked. 270 bpm worked, 135 bpm worked. 67.5 worked but the one I went with 90bpm – 270/3=90 bpm.
Very satisfying to have this info now but I don’t know what to do with it.
