Metrical circle maps divides the bar duration into equal sized bins (48 in this case) and maps metrical positions to the corresponding bin. (Labels normalized to 4/4 measure).

Duration Class (Abs. and Rel.) Histogram

../../_images/DizzyGillespie_Anthropology_DURCLASS_hist.png

Relative duration classes are based on the duration of the beat. Absolute duration classes are based on 120 bpm. See here for a definition of classes.
