Music and the Law of Rhythm

 

“Musick has Charms to soothe a savage Breast, to soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak.” ~William Congreve, The Mourning Bride

Music moves.  It flows, lilts, rises in crescendo, and fades in decrescendo.  It moves quickly, then slows, then resumes it’s original tempo.  Behind all of this is a steady, constant, predictable beat–a rhythm.

Have you ever watched someone move to music, but not to the beat? Take a look:

I feel Mr. Holland’s frustration as his students just can’t seem to find the beat.

Just as there is a rhythm to music, there is rhythm found in the world around us: day turns to night, the tide rises and falls, the seasons change predictably as the year progresses, and the cycle repeats. Hearts beat, pendulums swing, light and sound is produced by waves, the moon changes with each phase of its cycle, the planets move through their orbits.

With these and countless other natural phenomena as the backdrop, our lives have a rhythm to them as well.  We live by and create patterns of living on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis–we wake each day and carry out specific tasks; we have activities that repeat on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.  It creates a predictable structure by which we can live our lives.
