2001) documented an increase in recruitment on Georges Bank since the 1980s but noted as well the apparently low number of recruits in the area of the Mid-Atlantic Bight and the aperiodicity of recruitment throughout much of the western Atlantic.
Therefore, I contend that music based on aperiodicity is more corporeal and rooted in our existence more than "dance" music or march music.
In conclusion, vertical and horizontal organization - expressed as harmony and rhythm - follow parallel processes, since the harmonic motion (inharmonicity toward harmonicity) is imitated in the temporal domain by the motion of aperiodicity toward periodicity.
