Ethan Parker We only had a day of no electricity. A lot of our neighbors still have no electric, three : four days past hurricane.
multiples of 90 bpm.
about eight years ago I tried to find my “natural tempo”, as i assumed i must have one (I believe everybody does)
I love doing triplets at 270 bpm on the piano. I videoed it and timed it a few ways, consistent.
A year later on rambled for 10 minutes in a YouTube, talking off the cuff.
I knew I must have a natural speaking rate. I searched through various backing tracks trying to match up the speech to a rhythm but I wasn’t having any luck.
but when I focus on the pauses – the breaths i took, or the moments i was catching my thoughts, my timing was revealed
a backing track of 90 bpm made it sound as if I intentionally spoke at 90 bpm, fitting perfectly in the grooves left behind where I was not speaking.
but I created the opposite way, using the speech as a template for the rhythm
heart is consistently 90 bpm every time I go to the doctor so that’s probably what sets my natural pace
