"We wouldn't analyse a harmonic cadence and build a rhythm from it," says Drums Off Chaos member Reiner Linke. The relationship of E-T to cell division is perhaps the clearest way to understand its core compositional tools. "In cell division you have 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 - you think in periods," says Retter. "This is so that any rhythm - any number - after a while is also related in periods, which are always 4, 8, 16, something like that. The moment the octave is present, it brings with it the awareness of this cell division. With this relationship in mind, even if it's an 11 or a 13, there are always groups in 4s and 8s and 16s.
