The Elements of Rhythm, Vols. I & II, by David Aldridge, introduces the subject of binary rhythm pattern theory to systematically explore the origin of fundamental rhythm patterns. The series addresses the gap found in traditional music theory education by presenting the complete list of building block patterns that all larger, more complex combinations are derived from. Volume I uses simple binary logic (0,1) to generate the fundamental rhythm patterns, which are then re-written using conventional music notation and are printed on single music lines for practice and mastery. Additionally, they are categorized using a first-of-its-kind, binary indexing system.
