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( 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( except Indian.3( The beats in the resulting rhythms are as equidistant as possible; the same results can be obtained from the Bresenham algorithm.
