Description:

A groove is commonly understood as the feel of a rhythm. While this points in the right direction, it is notoriously vague. In this innovative work, Tiger C. Roholt demonstrates that a groove has three aspects: slight timing variations, perceptual structure, and bodily feeling.Roholt argues that grooves are likely to arise in experience when listeners direct their attention to a rhythm's pulse, allowing the timing variations to recede into the perceptual background. He invokes Merleau-Ponty's notion of perceptual indeterminacy and illustrates how these feelings of tension transform into positive feelings once regularities and expectations take hold - such as a rhythm's being "in the pocket," "laid back," "buoyant," and so on. Finally, he claims that body movement to a pulse is not merely a reaction to a rhythm but that it aids the listener in establishing a perceptual structure conducive to experiencing a groove, while also intensifying the bodily feelings.Written by an experienced drummer and philosopher, Groove is a vivid and exciting study of one of music's most central and relatively unexplored aspects.
