Rhythm is fluid. The starting point of rhythm is the individual rhythm pulse. Pulses can be aggregated to create complex Beat Patterns. Pulse Fusion 1 demonstrates how to compose complex Beat Patterns.
However, this is only the very beginning. Pulse Fusion 2 will extend our journey by demonstrating how rhythmic time can be subdivided thereby increasing rhythm granularity and generate rhythmic oscillation patterns. In Pulse Fusion 2 we leave ordinary counting behind with focus on memorizing complex patterns to build a rhythmic vocabulary.
The metronome is key to mastering complex rhythm patterns and rhythm algorithms provide a fresh perspective to visualize rhythm.
What could you do with Infinite Rhythm Patterns?
