THE RESPIRATORY UNDULATION AND ITS RHYTHMICALITY

THE RESPIRATORY UNDULATION AND ITS RHYTHMICALITY
The oscillatory cycle of respiration elicits two contrasting mechanical movements: expansion and compression; these actions are paired to form the constituent pattern that constantly repeats in a complementary manner that facilitates and regulates all types of kinetic movements. Thus, this elastic quality universally appears in a sequence of movements at various intensities and speeds; in doing so, what can be recognized as rhythmic flows physiologically arises in the body.
Rhythm can be defined as a phrase of physical movements, materially expressed with the combination of the strong and the weak elements. Furthermore, the biomechanical rhythmicality can be deliberately magnified and utilized for addressing expressive needs by interacting with musical instruments which are devised to convert touches into sounds.
