“The DrumMantra is a form of musical “meditation” that is rooted in repetitive, cyclical, polymetric coordination patterns based on the art & science of polymetric relationships. It is intended to ground our awareness and perception of time, rhythm, dynamics, phrasing, and balance through a vast series of polymetric patterns and exercises. It is a companion guide to developing a deeper understanding of time. Because the DrumMantra transcends any music style or genre, it will allow whatever music we are playing to be more fluid, solid, and creative.”
