What’s an Ostinato? | David Writes an Earworm


This is Music Corner Breve. I’m David Kulma. Ostinato. Ostinato. An ostinato is a musical figure that repeats
over and over again. An ostinato is a musical figure that repeats
over and over again. I’m building up loops to make this song. This technique goes back over hundreds of
years. You can hear it in Bach, Purcell, even Ray
Charles. Repetition is a way to drive music into your
brain. Ostinato. Ostinato. Make sure you subscribe to Music Corner for
weekly music theory videos, and check out my patreon page to support my work. Thanks for watching Music Corner Breve. I’ll see you next week, music nerds. And remember “everything we do is music.”
