“Rhythm belongs to the most primordial form, musical expression. Animated by heart and heartbeat, our ancestors where instinctively lead to transform this basic rhythm acoustically and integrate it into their patterns of life. Today, at the beginning of a new millennium, rhythmic and rhythm claim a fundamental importance in human awareness, placed well before melody and harmony.”
