I am building a collection of musical examples from around the world in which âmulti-temporalityâ (e.g., polyrhythm/polymeter/polytempo) plays a substantial role. We have already collected a number of representative examples from secondary sources (journal articles and monographs) and are now starting to collect examples from repertoires that have not received as much scholarly attention, focusing on the period from 1950 onward.
If you have any repertoire suggestions,
transcriptions, and/or recordings of music where the use of multi-temporality
is clearly apparent, please send them to
with a short
description. All original contributions will be appropriately acknowledged. A
short description of the research project is available on request. Once the
project is completed, we are planning to make these examples and related
materials available online for further research and pedagogical purposes.
