1800 Miles of Music: THE ACOUSTIC BICYCLE TOUR Taylor Ho Bynum with the PJCE
September 7, 2014 — 7 pm The Central Hotel, Portland, OR
The Relativity of Theory, Douglas Detrick: As I began working on this piece, tempo was on my mind. I started with two repeating rhythms—3 beats long in a 4-beat structure—that reminded me of the two rhythms that happen when you are biking: your feet and your breath. We start slow, then we “shift gears” in the middle, and then we end fast, as the melody stays the same throughout.
