“A Matter Of Time” looks at rhythm based on how rhythm affects the brain. In short, rhythm acts like a drill sergeant, causing the brain to work at its speed. This observation has many implications for how we understand rhythm and also how we can perform it.
After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Rhythm doesn’t have to do with the pattern of notes, but instead is the effect it has on people. Rhythm causes the brain to resonate, and this resonance is what drives the effect music has on us. In other words, rhythm acts like a drill sergeant, causing the brain to work at its speed. The information coming in through our senses is what drives the resonance, and through relying on our senses – by how the music feels – we can improve both what we play and how well we play it.
