Rhythms (1996)

What is the meter/tempo of your normal walk?

How often do you blink?

What is the current tempo of your breathing?

What is the current tempo of your heart rate?

What other rhythms do you hear if you listen?

What is your relationship to all of the rhythms that you can perceive at once?
