The Elements of Rhythm, Vol. II


Volume II introduces the concept of relative notation and absolute sound shapes. This gives readers an in-depth look at how same-sounding patterns can be written using different note values.


In other words, an absolute sound shape can appear in many forms, yet sound identical. Notation is relative and can look quite different in 4/32 than in 4/4... but the sound shape is absolute, and its sound is  recognizable, regardless of the varying notation contexts.


Vol. II also includes a comprehensive list of counting syllables, designed to help non-readers and beginning readers conceptualize the sound of the fundamental buillding block rhythm patterns.
