We like to test things... no matter how good an idea sounds, test it first.Henry Block
- A new musical composition built out of an already existing one, most often a new melody overlaid on a familiar harmonic structure. An important part of the development of bebop. Contrafacts are not to be confused with musical quotations, which comprise borrowing rhythms or melodies from an existing composition.
