Liner Notes: 

I used the Fibonacci numbers in three ways, all rhythmically.

First the time signatures. 1+1+2+3+5=12. Make those eighth notes and we're in 6/4. That's most of it. 1+1+2+3=7 (my favorite time sig). The noisy breakdown in the middle is in 7/8, the final section is in 7/4.

Second the instrumental rhythms. Often the first two 1's turned into a 2 and sometimes that all got turned into a 4 but always followed by a 3 and sometimes a 5. Almost everything fits the patter. There are a couple of places where I had to fit something in but it's mostly between the lines. As I listen to it now, there are more places I could conform but it's time to move on.

Finally I used a 3:5 interference pattern on the agogo blocks.

Altogether a most enjoyable exercise. thanks to @headfirstonly for suggesting it.

O beautiful maths. Cool soundscape love the guitar in that electronic world you built. Lots of ear candy!

Wow, this is really cool. That particular challenge seemed way over my head but you nailed it. Lots of neat sounds here, and the rhythm is really nice.

Glad you enjoyed taking part in the challenge. It's fascinating how different everyone's entries have sounded, but they've all been really inspiring and creative. This is great - fun title, bucketloads of ear candy and glitchy goodness in abundance. Downloaded!

Very aptly titled, it does have a great spanish flair to it. Tons of great swirly glitchy ear candy that I'm always all in to hear. Really enjoyed this a lot.

The math talk is always over my head, but I certainly feel the rhythms playing with my ears, I think the melody is really catchy. For me it is like rhythmic breaks or change ups in the song, but it all streams together really well. Nice challenge and production!
