Rhythm in music since 1900 remains a rich and fascinating field of inquiry. The second RiMs1900 conference seeks to bring multiple perspectives to bear on this field. It will address repertoires ranging from jazz and popular music to global musics and art musics, and topics from performance and pedagogy to cognition and theory. The featured presenters are composers, performers, and music scholars at the leading edges of rhythmic experimentation and conceptualization.
