The Euclidean rhythm in music was discovered by Godfried Toussaint in 2004 and is described in a 2005 paper “The Euclidean Algorithm Generates Traditional Musical Rhythms”.1(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euclidean_rhythm#cite_note-gtpdf-1) The greatest common divisor of two numbers is used rhythmically giving the number of beats and silences, generating almost all of the most important world music rhythms,2(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euclidean_rhythm#cite_note-gtweb-2) except Indian.3(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euclidean_rhythm#cite_note-extv-3) The beats in the resulting rhythms are as equidistant as possible; the same results can be obtained from the Bresenham algorithm.
