What is a Polyrhythm?
Polyrhythm is the combination of two or more rhythms played simultaneously.
You may have noticed that there are 3 white outlined shapes in our logo; a circle, triangle and a square. The idea of a polyrhythm generator is that if you start at the top of the circle and follow along, every time another shape intersects with the circle, there is a percussion sound. The square is its own rhythm and so is the triangle. If you look even closer, you'll notice that the sun is a record and the rays are sound waves. The grass, water and mountains also contribute to different sound waves and symbolize Alberta's beautiful landscape in the Rockies.
This meaning translates to beer when you replace rhythms with ingredients. With all the varying ingredients available (malt, hops and yeast), they can be layered to create something truly spectacular.
