Provocation: "no mathematical or explicable rhythmics
"; or "thirty-two words," "fifteen lines (one more than the sonnet)"; this is what calls for investigation.
Nonetheless, though the Harmonics of Aristoxenus is cited more than once, it is notable that the Rhythmics
is not mentioned outside the footnote alluded to earlier.
Over his career, he taught courses in rhythmics
, linguistics, rhetoric, stylistics, poetics, and modern American poetry, first, at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (1981-85) and then at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (1985-2013).
At the heart of Deafheaven's music is naked emotion and unstoppable drive, and that feeling of last-ditch urgency is as readily apparent in Sunbather's thundering rhythmics
and windpipe-ripping screams as it is in Clarke's admission that, "if this band doesn't work out, you might find me begging somewhere."
For now, one must maintain a dynamically charged neutrality which allows the deeper ores to transmute, to fully maturate, as though one were preparing for a more optimum rhythmics
of a coming transmundane interior era.
These four rhythmics
are elegantly oppositional and/or complementary, so much so that their rhythmic
qualities form a tight paradigmatic system.
His three "principles of form", or "conceptual primary models of music", statics, kinetics and rhythmics
, are essentially abstractions (like harmony, melody and rhythm)--they do not exist in absolutely pure form, it is possible only to approximate more or less to these pure types, and music is usually a unity of all three.
Eleanor Berry reviews earlier attempts at classifying free verse and suggests a multidimensional, five-axes "mapping tool" to help navigate the tremendous diversity of free verse prosodies, but even that classification does not exhaust free verse's rhythmics
. For example, Berry writes that "it is essential to consider the contribution of the syntax to the rhythm," an aspect that is not explicitly part of her five axes that comprise the form and prosody of free verse (887).
A pacemaker is a small device placed in the chest to help control abnormal heart rhythmics
