The study presented in this article starts from the idea that activities approaching rhythmic procedures—be these cognitive or relative to the music performance—can be applied to performance and cognitive environments. Here we deal with the relations of spatiality, movement, creation, and cognition from studies of music materials driven by rhythm stimuli. To this aim, we have highlighted some approaches of ethnomusicology, biology, and neuroscience that we have covered in previous researches and added them to our current practical experiences. At the end of this article, we report a practical experience using spatiality, improvisation, video, and technology as a venue to contribute to states of attention and perception as much as to create a poetic connection between music students and teachers.
