Nature and Rhythm.

In certain parts of nature, some animals  choose hibernation for managing the winter cycles as a ‘seasonal rhythm’ to life dictates rules and conditions they see during the seasonal period. In our day to day lives, we use a type of body clock system known as our ‘circadian rhythm’, this manages our sleep and wake sequences. Even in an orchestra, it is rhythm that keeps the many sounds of instruments together to render a song.

Symphony

 

Each instrument involved in this rhythm requires attention from time to time in order to stay keyed or in tune. Out of tune, off key instruments result in  the sounds being out of harmony or in a state of disaccord musically speaking. The beauty of tuning, even just one instrument, is that the rest of the orchestra’s instruments can technically be tuned as well. Literally tuning just one part of the  larger equation can allow for each other to be possibly tuned as well.
