This lesson introduces the concept of cyclic and cadence forms. Cyclic forms are rhythmic forms that can repeat itself in cycles. Examples include all of the rhythmic cycles that was discussed from Lessons 6 through 16 (thekas and prakars). Also, Srila Prabhupada's practice rhythm (rela) is an example of a cyclic form. Cyclic sets take up multiple cycles to express the rhythm.
In contrast, cadences are rhythmic forms that function as connecting phrase, starting or finishing phrase, or transitioning phrases. Its duration can be less than or equal to the number of beats of the cycle. (For example, a cadence for an 8 matra cycle can be 8 matras or less). Transitioning or connecting beats are known as the mukhra.
