use a composite time signature of 1+9/32 showing alternate 5/16.

if you use a 32nd on the 1st beat, do the same thing but at the /64 level.

EDU can only be used for "single-symbol" durations and their dotted and 
double-dotted versions (1/32, 3/16, 7/32).  anything that needs to be tied 
(5/16, 9/anything) can't be represented as EDUs.
