The big return of Euclidean Rhythms ?
Euclidean Rhythms are THE thing everyone is talking about at the moment, long time overlooked by many, Euclidean rhythms are in fact nothing new.
NI Reaktor users play with this technique since years, Max/Msp users as well and the hardware modular world was never left behind.
So, what it is all about ?
We recently posted a video from from the excellent Voltage Control Lab website / blog explaining what it is exactly (posted again today for the purpose of this article).
If you want to know more about Euclidean Rhythms and by the way, to know more about the excellent Voltage Control Lab blog, here you go :
If you are a NI Reaktor user, the Reaktor User Library is the place to go for Euclidean ensembles / instruments :
If you want to enjoy hearing and looking at some softwares and modular synths playing with Euclidean sequences, here you go :
If you would like to go a little bit deeper in understanding the Euclidean possibilities, the internet is full of excellent reading :
As usual with Create Digital Music / Peter Kirn, an excellent article about Euclidean Rhythms and circles :
