Rhythms abound today, in a time where all manner of rhythms intersect and amplify each other. Rhythmanalysis enables us to discuss lived experience, both in terms of the constraints of contemporary society, but also the affordances (social, techno­logical, cultural) that we all have access to, in different ways. By focusing on rhythms, we recognize how multiple, different forms inform both our experience but also culture and society as a whole. Rhythmanalysis allows for close attention to the particularities of each rhythm, while also recognizing the combined effect. In this way, rhythmanalysis can be seen as an productive supplement of constructivist thought, thus illuminating critical theory, poststructuralism, and most other branches of cultural theory.

Revisiting, discussing and revising Henry Lefebvre’s rhythmanalysis, this volume thus contributes to rhythmanalysis by outlining a methodology for others to adapt, while at the same time providing specific instances of how rhythmanalysis can work as an analytic  tool, but also shows how rhythms manifest in a multitude of ways.
