Re: Rhythm perception
I will provide you an answer as simplistic as the deduction you made: If there is a heavy emphasis on one beat of the sequence _*it doesn't mean that it is the first beat*_. In jazz music for exemple, the emphasis is on the second and fourth beath.

We were discussing rhythm patterns the other day and the question came
up about how one determined the start of a pattern. If there is a
heavy emphasis on one beat of the sequence then I can understand that
that is taken as the first beat.
But if the sequence is unemphasised how does one decide? Or do
people decide differently, or is it cultural?
I am not sure where to start to look -- as ever this is outside my
general field of study -- but I though this list might be the place
to ask for clues.
I hope I have explained the question sufficiently!
