Here is a sample of the simple rhythms for our group experiment. I apologize for any fuzziness in the image and will figure that out soon! All the rhythms contain 12 beats (either 4 bars of 3/4 or 3 bars of 4/4) using only 8ths, quarters, half notes and dotted half notes. There are no syncopations. The altered versions are found directly underneath their initial “inspiration” and are hopefully subtle changes. I made alterations in two ways: by either changing a single note value (ex: a quarter note becoming two 8ths, etc) or by flipping a rhythmic cell (ex: two 8ths and a quarter becoming a quarter and two 8ths, etc). The alternate versions will always be presented in the identical tempo as the original.
