Rhythm: Contrasting the Implications of Audiation and Notation

Edwin E. Gordon

This important book is first of its kind to give us a thorough framework for rhythm-what it is and how it should best be understood. Written by one of the great music thinkers and educators of our time, Edwin E. Gordon, this book will change the way you think about rhythm.

Dr. Gordon believes that rhythm is far more than a series of note values: rhythm is truly multidimensional, and all its components need to be explored if one is to truly understand rhythm. In many cases notation is a poor way to study rhythm, Dr. Gordon states.

This book covers topics such as the definition of rhythm, audiation, the meaning of tempo, movement, improvisation, rhythm solfege, notation, usual and unusual meters, and many other related subjects. The accompanying compact disc includes recorded examples.

Rhythm: Contrasting the Implications of Audiation and Notation is essential reading for musicologists, music history specialists, music educators, and music theorists and is a major contribution to these fields.
