I think it depends on what you mean by 'doing something': personally I
have always been fascinated by the 'beat' in Bach's music. If for
example one looks at the opening of the Magnificat in D major (BWV 243)
[2], although the rhythm may not be as complex and intertwined as
certain polyrhythms in 'non-western' music, it's hard to see it as
'doing essentially nothing' (demonstrated by the fact that most
performances you can search for on the web are lacking in some aspect of
the rhythmic interpretation, at least in my humble opinion).

I fully agree.
And I also think that those "other places" are not necessarily physical
places: it is probably time to think of 'music' in a broader, more open
manner (I am open to changing terminology if 'music' has a too strong
historical valence).

Lorenzo.

[1] I say 'settle', because certain prominent harmonic traits in western
tonal music we still use today, date much earler than Bach. Nonetheless
it was him who perfected and unified lots of them.
