Hi Peepuls

I have been working on how to utilise Simon Blackmore's experimental coded system that can trigger individual rhythms by tapping out a simple binary code with two sticks. Each code is tapped out in time with a guided click track, which then triggers a recorded cyclical pattern of rhythm in real time. There are similarities between 'binary code' and the 'Ifa code' in terms of their numerical structure. The Ifa is the traditional Yoruba's Divination code. The question that I am asking currently is, putting belief and divination aside, could there be a rhythmic link between the two codes that emerges as a result of their simularity? Is there inherent values/logic to certain patterns of rhythms or are they just arbitary? The concept of the return beat both organic and digital, is key to understanding the context of this research.

This idea of 'code' is one of the components of Johannes Birringer's research project 'Ukiyo', floating worlds. We are going to Japan in Dec 09 to explore some of these ideas further. I am interested to see how the concept of code can be research practically within 'Ukiyo'
