rhythmic / theme
A drum, two sticks beaten together, a stamping foot or a hand clap, the essential foundation of dance and song, your breath, your blood pumping in your ears, your lover's beating heart. Rhythm is a theme or motif repeated, the music of spoken poetry, the emphases equidistant, a formal infrastructure that variations only enhance.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
