This introduction charts several of rhythm's various returns as a way of laying out the theoretical and methodological field in which the articles of this special issue find their place. While Henri Lefebvre’s rhythmanalysis is perhaps familiar to many, rhythm has appeared in a wide repertoire of guises, in many disciplines over the decades and indeed the centuries. This introduction attends to the particular roles of rhythm in the formation of modernity ranging from the processes of industrialization and the proliferation of new media technologies to film and literary aesthetics as well as conceptualizations of human psychology, social behaviour and physiology. These are some of the historical antecedents to the contemporary understandings of rhythm within body studies to which most of the contributions to this issue are devoted. In this respect, the introduction outlines recent approaches to rhythm as vibration, a force of the virtual, and an intensive excess outside consciousness.

I don't know if if I'm off in left field but here are my two cents' worth... Gotta say though that f is not just any (differentiable) scalar function… it's a nice way at "inducing" continuity where the underlying may not have it..
If the second time-derivative is going to zero, one would be approaching a steady state of no change, i.e. no new energy entering or leaving the system.
If the second time-derivative is positive, why would that induce flickering? If the second derivative is positive at a point, are not you not only providing half the story? Wouldn’t you need to see how the change is changing over time rather than tending?
For the thing to flicker, one would need discontinuities in the system or very tight oscillations to the changing system... tending-positive to infinity, finding another “plateau” of zero (or near zero) and then another tending-negative to infinity and repeat
This flickering effect feels like a cycling of meta-stability where contributing factors within the system impede the system from acquiring a one way or the other... or exit that meta-stable state... the correlation lengths would depend on the energy dynamics of the system, how rough the cycling is, i.e. how much energy is required to get out of the troughs of the meta-stability yet not enough to break away from the cycling and revert to the meta-stable trough. Experimentally, to break the spell one needs to introduce ever larger amounts of energy, heighten the amplitude of the energy dynamics as roughness into the cycling so one overwhelms the threshold boundary and break free from the prevalent dynamic onto another regime. You gotta introduce some rough stuff into the system, i.e. introduce difference or change, to mix it up and break free from the toxic stability....Does this make sense?
I hope this doesn’t land like a hair in the soup, like they say in Qc French.

Hey Todd,Hope you’re good.I have been working and thinking about a couple of issues a lot lately in group neuroscience .. the two key topics are joint action and entrainment. Joint action is just multiple actors working together to accomplish some task … like two people carrying a table together, or a couple of soccer players moving the ball down the field. These are interesting problems because they require the actors to have some sense of what their partners are trying to accomplish and how they are going about that. Entrainment is an entirely hypothesized process in which two brains come into “synchrony” in order to communicate .. this is thought to be important in language, but obviously is also important in music performance.Entrainment, however, is pretty loosely defined at the moment … we have an idea for getting at entrainment using musicians. The notion is to get an ensemble together, a good ensemble … and record simultaneous EEGs from the players as they work a piece.To some extent this has been done before: with saxophones (ugh!) The focus of that paper was on EEG markers of empathy (even more ugh), and the usual expected changes in EEG associated with listening to and motor outputs for music.What I’d like to do is do real analysis across multiple brains during performance, and see if we can see electrical signs of entrainment as they are working. In a dream world, as the ensemble locks into “togetherness” … the brains will entrain. Or vice versa.Anyway, to go after this we will need to synch up multiple EEGs, and more importantly, find a good ensemble that might be up for this.I thought of AME, and wondered if there would be somebody there interested in devoting a little bit of time and nominal resources to chasing this down.In any case, have good holidays,STeve
