RESTRAINED HEART-BEAT OF MUSIC: RHYTHM




RESTRAINED HEART-BEAT OF MUSIC: RHYTHM



Rhythm is the heartbeat of Music and Dance.
In the East, rhythm can be complex with a time cycle
of not only multiple of two and three but other
odd numbers forming a time cycle like five, seven.

Why West never went beyond a multiple of just
two and three is very difficult to understand.
Despite having great musicians in the West
none of them selected a rhythm based on
odd number other than 3 and its multiples
but avoiding nine and fifteen or eighteen.

If you are a Musician or even a Music lover
try finding a single example of Western Music
with rhythm based on five, seven, nine or even
ten and eleven beats in a rhythm cycle and
you will see straight away what I am saying.
