We could garnish our music with a lot of sounds that fills no purpose. Then people wouldn’t complain about it being monotonous. But it’s the monotony that gives the songs their power. A “ta-ta-ta-tam” played over and over again never sounds exactly the same. The brain perceives it differently each time. The arrangements that we put effort into does not appear until you have gotten into the rhythm properly.
