Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Bootie bootie bootie!  Never heard it before--like I wrote, I am way out of the current loops, I'm still hoping young ETers--young lurkers!--will appear with fantastic music I've never heard before.

For rhythm I'm thinking: Okay, we'll need a one beat (I have that in mind); a two beat (okay...); a three beat (can do); four beat (just the one--but which to choose and why?); five beat--hmmmm....I heard something the other day, but can I find such things on youtube?; six beat (doable); seven beat (ah!); eight beat (two fours?  Could be interesting); nine beat--okay, I have ideas; ten beat (lovely!  But can I find anything?); eleven beat--???; twelve beat--doable; thirteen, fourteen--the only music I can think of that has thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen beat cycles is indian, though sixteen is four fours so that could be another aspect of the four--

Hey, here's a three beat.  Actually, I think there might be a nine or twelve in there too.

You know, on a re-liten I'll call that a six basic with strange multiple-of-three combinations--

Ah, but the ten--

Oh and recognised the song from the picture, so sang it trough in my head, rather than changing to IE ;-)

well jokingly I was going to throw this at you

plus once you have done those rythms you have bands like the Cardiacs who have a tendancy to change rythms sometimes every few bars.

Yeah, rhythmic variation--also I'm sure DoDo will know of pieces with no clear rhythmic patterns--not just chopping and changing (or/and slowing and speeding) but...no clear pulses at all.

And Captain Beefheart, of course!
