Some new age music, often refereed to as space music, is often pretty absent of rhythm. Melodies flow into each other with out any set rhythm. But it's clearly more of en exception.
Can the absence of a pattern be construed as a pattern? Then can the absence of a rhythm be construed as a rhythm? This strains pretty hard at what definitions of rhythm and melody are. I'd love to hear someone with an advanced degree in music theory or composition give their .02.
