Paul Pellegrin



...a polyrhythmic force on drums and percussion...
- Gapplegate

Paul Pellegrin is a "polyrhythmic force on drums and percussion" (Gapplegate) and a composer working in Los Angeles. His approach to music involves complex rhythmic and melodic counterpoint and modulation. He usually begins by exploring hybrid rhythmic phrases in a polymetric time (e.g., 5/3/4, 7/5/3, 6/7/9, 8/12/15) and from this builds the melodic components of a song. He likens these hybrid phrases to "claves" (in an Afro-Cuban sense), because, although they are not always explicitly heard in the music, they are the rhythmic "keys" that allow the song--or the musicians while improvising--to modulate to different feels or meters, somewhat akin to African music, but with the intention of being even more stratified (if that is possible).
