This is a musically animated sphere, created in Maya and composited in After Effects. The idea developed after I made a sphere in Maya consisting only of four-sided polygons.
I used the Maya bonus tools area.autodesk.com/bonus_tools to gain access to the AudioWave node. This, and a little interface called as_audioAnimator that I found here: creativecrash.com/maya/downloads/scripts-plugins/animation/c/as_audioanimator--2, allowed me to animate the sphere to the beat of the music.
The audio is a 30s sample of a track that came with Windows 7 called "Kalimba" by Mr. Scruff, so hats off to him.
