"Mixed" Time Signatures

• Nov 2, 2010 - 14:13

Is it possible to have different time signatures in the same song? For example, going from 2/4 to 3/4 the next measure, then back to 2/4. There's some music I'd like to do that has occasional changes like this.

Karg Elert's Eb Minor Passacaglia for Harmonium or Organ actually has 2 Time Signatures in one of the Variations. We have 3/8 Time (3 Beats per Measure indicated as Eighth Notes), but there's also 9/16 Time (9 Beats per Measure indicated as Sixteenth Notes). 9/16 Time can actually be thought of as 3/8 Time w/ Sixteenth Note Triplets on Each Beat.
