a common space & database for harmonic overtones
... a reflection of the harmonic series at a lower frequency.
Illustrated with hands drumming and animated graphic as parts of a three stage rhythm rocket:
- The mental understanding of how the 2-pulse and the 3-pulse merge within a 6 beat cycle. This gets clear from the animation.
- The use of word strings to facilitate the memory and execution with hand.
- The integration in body which needs other postures - lying and walking,...
The video plays in three tempi for different levels of practice challenge: Slow, medium and fast, each of 90 seconds duration.
The right hand (blue colour) continuously drums a 2-divided even pulse, which you may count
All in all 6 beats pr cycle but only the numbered are with claps. They are accentuated naturally by the string of words:
PO-ly-RHY-thm-PO-ly-RHY-thm-... (or alternatives like "IT'S a FEE- ling" etc. MAJUSCLES indicate stressed syllables whereas minuscles indicate syllable with stress on the counter-pulse)
The left hand (green colour) continuously drums a 3-divided even pulse, which you may count
Again a 6 beats pr cycle with claps on the numbered elements. They are accentuated naturally by the string of words:
NOT DIF-fi-CULT NOT DIF-fi-CULT... (and alternatives which you may find!)
Feel free to challenge yourself changing hands, following either the 2- or the 3- pulse with your feet,....
