Genealogy of Rhythmic Patterns (Research Post-1)

Installation Idea:

This is a sketch of me explaining my spatial audio idea to a friend. The overall shape is Latin America, drawn on a floor. The X marks the user’s spot. The circles represent speakers, and they placed according to geographic locations, i.e : Colombia, Panama, Brazil, and Uruguay. The rhythms would be coming from the speakers, and every rhythm will be quantized with each other, so they will all be playing on the same BPM.
