Restless Leg Syndrome

In order to fit the entire genetic code for the tendency for restless leg syndrome into a piece of music under 2 minutes I used Balinese gamalon music, normally based on five notes, as a launching point for this four-note exercise. The pulsating drone at the beginning takes the place of the gong. The code as melody is stacked vertically with the lower-pitched instruments generally playing the slow melodies and the higher instruments playing the code double or quadruple speed. The sub-bass, though, soon gets bored and decides that it also wants to go fast. The result is a kind of fractal drum and bass fugue celebrating this new mythic abstraction from science.
