  18. 18.   Symmetry – additive value; balanced mathematically   2 + 4 + 6 = 6 + 4 + 2 = 4 + 4 + 4   Rhythmic fluidity – ratio or fraction relationship   subdivision of 4 vs. subdivision of 3 = 1/4 vs. 1/3   Cyclical form – multiplicational value   number of pulses × subdivision = number of units available   Flexibility in standpoint – figure/ground relationship © 2012 Rajna Swaminathan. All rights reserved.

  20. 20. cross-rhythm 4 4 4 4 4 tala 5 5 5 5 if one is the primary pulse, it acts like a tala (outer structure) with a gathi (inner structure) of 5 (due to least common multiple of 20) © 2012 Rajna Swaminathan. All rights reserved.
