In “A Generative Theory of Tonal Music”, Lerdahl and Jackendoff discuss two forms of rhythmic structure which they call metrical structure and grouping structure. Together these constitute a basis for an analytical understanding of rhythmic structure in music. This article is about a software based editor which allows the interactive exploration of these two types of hierarchical rhythmic structures.
