I'm one of those people that claim they don't follow specific forms when writing, and really i don't. I find minuet forms and symphony forms very limiting. But yet i still seem to fall into this pattern when i write of what may be considered an Allegro to a slower section then back to an allegro, or the same pattern inverse.
I just wanted to know what everyone else thought. Are forms a good way to keep music relevant(entertaining to its listeners, easy to listen to?) or are they limiting? Do our patterns in writing come from the music we hear ourselves?
