But is it Music?

Just in case anyone forgets the fact that music is math has created an awesome and mind fucking little gadget.

The idea behind it is that each dot represents a note on the chromatic scale and the line represents the string that they "pluck" or, rather, "plucks" them. It's not that simple though, each dot spins at a different speed. The smaller the dot, the higher the note, the faster the speed. So, if the big bass dot on the outside goes around the circle once every three minutes, the next largest dot goes around the circle twice every three minutes, the next largest three every three minutes, and so on ad nauseum.

and naseuated you will be. This seriously breaks your mind the first time and then over and over again when they fuck with the timbre or tone or speed. My favorite is either the ethereal microtones or the prime numbers that look (and sound) like broken teeth. ooh ooh, or stereo 210 that just sounds like the inside of Stephen Hawking's brains.

holy shit, hours of wonderful goddamn zombification.
