Thanks to Mike Cooper for putting this up who work can be found linked to this video. A very early show of Chris Abrahams and I and early in the set. Perhaps turn down the volume a bit if it distorts. It is not easy to record such thing off the cuff. It has evolved quite a bit since here and even the instruments have changed color:)

Anyone who has crossed paths with Erv Wilson will sooner or later will be given a copy of Meru Prastara. So when looking at South Indian meters and stumbling across the term above, I had to take notice. In South India they have a method to figure out all the combinations and permutations, but they do so in a very specific order which when listed in a row one can easily fail to see the pattern. In these two diagrams the subdivisions of 6 and 7 are arranged in a way that i think makes the pattern method clearer.
