Compound Tests Participant C11 was only given a single compound test before the final MTS test, but the remaining participants (C12-15) were given three compound tests, each of which included a balanced mixture of AB, BA, AC, CA, BC and CB dyads, all of which can be taken as tests of equivalence, followed by a similar fourth test incorporating a phased desynchronization of the stimuli.

The central idea is that synchronization and desynchronization cooperatively code episodic memories, with synchronized activity in the hippocampus in the theta (~4 Hz) and gamma (~ 40-60 Hz) frequency range mediating the building of associations, and neocortical desynchronization in the alpha (~10 Hz) and beta (~15 Hz) frequency range mediating the representation of mnemonic information.
These processes are obvious in many of Reich's landmark works, among them Piano Phase, Pendulum Music or Drumming, where Reich adds to the mix the idea of "phasing;" that is, the subjection of a given musical material to a drawn-out process of synchronization and desynchronization, in which rhythm is phased against rhythm, producing an acoustic disorientation that is of considerable interest from a micro-temporal standpoint.
