Skaredahora used three rhythmic patterns of quaver beats in a short, purely percussive, composition. His “Dotykam” rhythm has accents on beats 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10 & 11; “Kluc” has accents on beats 1, 8 and one particular beat in between; and “Omacka” has accents on beats 1, 2, 5, 6 & 10. Several percussion instruments are involved, each playing one of the three rhythms, but starting at different times. Overall the patterns overlap, with every beat in the composition being filled by an accent from exactly one of the instruments, and all the patterns finishing by the end of the composition.
What is the other beat of Kluc, and what is the order of appearance of the rhythmic patterns (eg DOOKD)?
