We attempt to trace the origins of rhythm from a cultural/evolutionary perspective and from an environmental/developmental perspective. What is the DNA of musical rhythm? What are the building blocks of rhythm? Why do we preference some patterns of rhythmic organization over others? Why do we seek periodicity and repetition. Why to we anticipate variation and contrast?
Music is a bi-product of our genes interacting with our environment.
