As a cosmic, poetic, musical, temporal force, rhythm has an etymological and philosophical resonance that emerged in archaic Greece and continues to echo through recent studies of meter, sound, difference, time, and performance.
Such studies have been focusing on the work of rhythm; but how about the rhythm of work, of constructivist creativity? For example, how can we talk about rhythmic listening, the ways in which we rhythm what we hear? What kind of rhythmic elaboration turns hearing to listening? And how about collaborative rhythming, the rhythm of collaborative friendship?
