Présentation de l'éditeur

Rhythm changes us. Literally. Rhythm acts like a drill sergeant, organizing and synchronizing the brain to its beat. In A Matter of Time: the science of rhythm and the groove, Lamb looks at those physiological changes and defines rhythm by its effect on us. But he doesn't stop there, he compares the body's physiological changes with what top musicians say about rhythm and finds striking similarities. This approach suggests a simple theory of how rhythm works and explains, for example, words like swing and groove are commonly used to describe music.

“When I read this book it was like having a grand unification of all of the moving parts. Everything fell into place... For me personally this book is one of the few that have made a profound difference in my awareness of and how I approach music.” - Mike Tarrani, Amazon Top 50 Reviewer

5.0 étoiles sur 5 `Connection is the currency of music.' 12 juin 2013
Par Grady Harp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Author John Lamb explains early on in this well written and well designed (gorgeous visual elements really enhance this book) book on Rhythm, `Explaining what rhythm is literally, a way to explore personally what rhythm is, what it feels like and what it means....Motivation is the motor, but accurate understanding is the destination.' What he has provided for the professional musician, the student musician, and the layperson alike is a beautifully sculpted path to understanding that most basic aspect of music - and actually of life - Rhythm.

In this brief but thorough book he takes us through an exploration of What is Rhythm, bring the ideas of resonance, language, pulse, the heart rate and the integration of all of this information into understanding the higher elements of meter, metronomic control (do we hear it of feel the pulse of it's beat?), the `rules' of music and how to overcome the external aspects and internalize them.

He includes his own philosophy of the difference between live performance and recorded music, how music enters the emotions, and how we ultimately connect with the rhythm/music of his chosen topic.

Lamb writes in a way that he wants us to understand his message - a technique sorely missing in other books that attempt to explain the magic of understanding the foundations of music. Lamb comes to this shared experience with a bachelor's degree in Music, Biology and Psychology and a Masters in Education focused on teaching rhythm. He is not only a teacher but he also has studied drumming and performs widely from his home location in Portland, Oregon. And, yes, he is a professional photographer which explains why the many beautiful images in this book are so additive. Grady Harp, June 13

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thought provoking - and not just for drummers 12 novembre 2013
Par Mike Tarrani - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I received a review copy of this book from the author many months ago and keep coming back to it. The main reason is there are so many thought-provoking nuggets of information that I could not assimilate them all in a reading.

First off, this may be written by a drummer, but it's intended for all musicians. What I love is the way this book focuses on seemingly simple concepts such as rhythm and time, then delves deeply into them and provides an explanation that covers not only the physical elements, but the psychological and physiological factors as well. Along the way Lamb defines and explains pulse, meter, groove and a number of other interrelated terms that we tend to use, but until I read this book did not realize that I was wrong. An example is what I thought was pulse turns out to be something different.

My first introduction to some of the concepts in this book was from a brief video segment by New Orleans drum legend Johnny Vidacovich. He was very aware of the same factors that Lamb explains in this book, but was not nearly as articulate or as thorough in explaining it. For years some of what Vidacovich discussed nagged at me. When I read this book it was like having a grand unification of all of the moving parts. Everything fell into place and I now have a clear understanding rhythm and time - and the constituent parts.

This book has helped me to be both a better drummer and musician by opening my mind to subtleties I can use to enhance music I am playing. One example is how I can greatly alter a groove just by playing slightly behind or ahead of the beat (or directly on it). I also came away with a clear understanding of how I can stretch or compress time to actually change the meaning of the music. A clear example of that concept is given in a lot of Charles Mingus albums in which Mingus on bass and his drummer Dannie Richmond do just that. I was always puzzled by the fluid way Mingus and Richmond played around with time, but after reading this book it made perfect sense.

Above I have given only a few examples of why I love this book. There are many more reasons and you may find some by using the Look Inside feature at the top of this page. For me personally this book is one of the few that have made a profound difference in my awareness of and how I approach music.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Informative with a Unique Layout 11 juin 2013
Par Danielle D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I was intrigued by the subject matter. As homeschoolers, I am constantly on the lookout for new information and resources. We are big on music and music lessons. I always saw music as important, but didn't really understand why. This book did a great job of explaining the importance of music in our lives. From brain waves to the groove of music, A Matter of Time explains it all.

A short read, easily understood - even by children, with a little explaining. Very informative with a unique layout. I don't usually read books that link to videos, we all enjoyed that!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Let yourself go with the flow 13 juin 2013
Par J. Chambers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Although I've never had any musical training, I had no difficulty understanding the concepts of rhythm, resonance, and beat explained by musician John Lamb in his short but illuminating book "A Matter of Time." He defines rhythm as repetition in space or time. Since the author's background is in music, the book is primarily about musical rhythm (notes repeated in time to form a repeating pattern). Rhythm is resonance, and the book illustrates a non-musical example of resonance with a story about Nikolai Tesla almost destroying a building when he hit on the structure's resonant frequency.

The book isn't just about music theory, however. Rhythms are patterns, and these patterns cause our brains to resonate, in a process known as brain wave entrainment. Entrainment synchronizes neural activity. The author uses this phenomenon to explain why live music will always sound better than recorded music. He also explains the so-called Mozart Effect, where learning to play music improves seemingly unrelated mental skills.

Musicians and music students should get a better feel for their music by understanding the concept of rhythm and timing, but as someone with no music background whatsoever, I enjoyed the book and got a better understanding of why I enjoy some musical works better than others.

Note: the book includes a number of links to YouTube videos and other web links. My Kindle Paperwhite isn't capable of playing YouTube videos, so I had to use my PC to connect with these.

A review copy of the book was provided by the author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic Book 25 mars 2014
Par Florian Höfner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Rhythm is one of the key elements of music and the one the hardest to teach. That's my experience as a professional musician and music teacher. John Lamb lays out his ideas on the topic in a very clear an organized way so that musicians of any level can benefit from it. And not just that - it is also a very valuable read for the listener and music enthusiast. The book makes great use of technology by embedding useful pictures and videos. I highly recommend it!
