I'm making a music game. It's a dancing game to electronic music at 120ish bpm in 4/4 time (I'm assuming).
I have beats, and 4 of those make a measure.
But dancers yell that 5,6,7,8 before dancing, so whats a good name for those pairs of measures?
The music seems very structured into groups of 8 measures with a theme, then move to another theme. I've been calling these "Movements" - they don't always have to be 8 measures, but seem to be a power of two.
Naming things is about communicating. I've been googling, but haven't found a description for these groups of measures.
Is it structured or do yall just make it up?
