We explore the hypothesis that intergestural phasing relations are implemented via coupling terms in a nonlinear dynamical systems model. We extend the dynamical model of relative phasing to include the possibility of attractor states that are characterized by phase windows, and contrast this behavior with standard models that display punctate relative phasing.
