Another study in simple harmonic motion and the nature of complex patterns created from the interaction of multilayered rhythms.
Here 30 nodes are oscillating with fixed periods in simple harmonic motion, with each node having a slightly different frequency. The total loop cycle duration is exactly 120 seconds (60s for the audio).
