Polyrhythms, Version 2
I introduced polyrhythms a long time ago and, frankly, I never have been happy with that early attempt of mine. While that original page is good at explaining the basics of a polyrhythm, it fails to produce something musical. Though I used a real African drum, the early generator sounds artificial. I often have considered updating it with better sound sources. Only recently, however, did I set to work.
This time, I opened my mind to varied instruments and sounds, as opposed to the single drum used in the original generator. I have a kalimba that has yet to be used on any myNoise generator, different rain sticks, and a fresh pair of asalatos, a present my daughter brought back from Senegal. When African frogs and insects joined the mix - hey, they play in a polyrhythmic pattern, too! - the ensemble really got exciting! Delicate, musical, but complex, too complex to explain the concept of a polyrhythm to the untrained ear. Therefore, I have decided not to update the original page (yet), but rather publish this version as a separate generator.
