Rhythm affects the flow of a composition, it can help us to modify time, but on another hand is a tool to manipulate brains and heart beats, and maybe everything in the world.
In the last years I have been very interested in how our world is made of vibrating particles moving at a certain frequency and time. We humans, same, function in certain rhythms and frequencies and the exposition of our body and brain to rhythms and frequencies modifies the way they work. Is it like a synching connection?
Music rhythm can affect heart beat and in funky and recent studies it has prove to modify cells, water, particles of objects… but until there is not more studies, information available and regulations on the topic (I’m sure they will some day) sound designers can keep playing with the manipulation by rhythm and also frequency.
