Time Manipulation - Section 2 - Polyrhythmic Patterns

In Section 2 of Time Manipulation, new patterns are formed using some of the basic rhythmic figures seen in Section 1.
This is done in a musical way, using polyrhythms that are ubiquitous in many musical traditions, as well as in current styles.
  • I suggest to play the 16 patterns of the page in sequence, each measure being played twice.
  • You can work on separate patterns at first, but playing the patterns in sequence is what brings out the real strength of the exercices.
