I am an outsider artist, I have no qualifications and I am very creative. My musical experiences are many and varied and based on my own reworking of music theory. I have been accused of playing Pop, Jazz, Rock, Classical, Electroacoustic, Free Improv, Indian, African and Electronic music, but in reality I just play me and have never studied or pursued any genre. I also create puzzles, embroidery and seemingly pointless lists of patterns. I like to swim in the sea with my wonderful Wife who is an acclaimed visual artist.

comment What's this rhythm called?
Traditional music has had hundreds of years and not named the rhythms, instead it has created a written form where exactly the same sounding rhythm can be written in many different ways. I accept that my names are not universally accepted and my books not widely distributed but they do address real issues. I do not expect Joe Z to adopt my practice, I was pointing out that rhythms do now have names. Before my work they did not. This rhythm is now called 'Longfu' whether you like it or not. Or perhaps you think someone else should spend 15 years sorting out and renaming them

How will you move forward without 'Nonstandard nomenclature (and/or notation)' or are you only interested in the past?

comment Polymeter vs Polyrhythm
I am currently editing rhythms that are 10 against 15. a good example is 'Cong Ob Grotam' which runs 121210210010121021201210100120 and contains no 'Both' beats.

comment Polymeter vs Polyrhythm
The simplest polyrhythm that does not include straight Beats is 'Geera Ak Hap Djeb'. 'Geera' is 1110 in integer notation and 'Djeb' is 110. 'Hap Djeb' means that the Djeb is stretched twice as long (101000) 'Ak' means that the two rhythms start together in normal form. 'Geera Ak Hap Djeb' runs B1B011B0B110 (Both hands play B) 'Geera El Hap Djeb' runs 1B1211121B10 (Where the Geera and the Hap Djeb start out of phase)

Hi Tim. Sorry, no Normandie connection (I'm on the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales). I use 8712 Names for the rhythms up to 16 beats long and additional words for the nature of the interaction of the two rhythms when they combine to make a polyrhythm - for example there are 5 ways that a 10 beat long rhythm will combine with a 15 beat rhythm. This way the name of each polyrhythm tells you exactly how it sounds.
