Description

Finding the Beat is an engaging, comprehensive, and illuminating insight into our innate understanding of entrainment. I must admit that I had real difficulty in finding the beat when I first heard Thom play Pyramid Song. Nathan’s book has helped me realise that maybe I wasn’t winging it quite so much as I thought, as I picked my own route through the rhythmic possibilities of that song.

Finding the Beat is an engaging, comprehensive, and illuminating insight into our innate understanding of entrainment. I must admit that I had real difficulty in finding the beat when I first heard Thom play Pyramid Song. Nathan’s book has helped me realise that maybe I wasn’t winging it quite so much as I thought, as I picked my own route through the rhythmic possibilities of that song.

In this thought-provoking and richly interdisciplinary study, Nathan Hesselink takes us on a fascinating musical journey—one that appropriately begins and ends with Radiohead—in search of a better understanding of that crucial defining feature of rock music, “the beat.” Finding the Beat will be essential reading not only for rock scholars but also anyone interested in music cognition, rhythm and meter, or the analysis of popular music more broadly.

Nathan Hesselink is Professor of Ethnomusicology at the University of British Columbia, Canada, and a previous Distinguished Speaker of the Association for Asian Studies. The author/editor of four books and 16 articles on Korean traditional drumming and dance, he has recently published on Radiohead, the Police, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
