$The music basically consists of string instruments and a bass and a keyboardy
$instrument I can't remember the name of right now, and they all follow the sam
$pulse. It may sound boring and monotous at first, but there's some fascinating
$play of overtones going on, which is constantly changing. Sort of like a very
$advanced mouth harp, but with a pseudo-beat to Nod your head to.
