Skrillex, Turn This Monkey Out!
This piece uses a fractal construction. Its underlying rhythm is based on the following motif:
Here, the bass plays the rhythm as notated, the bongos and tom-toms are compressed by a factor of two, and the kick drum is expanded by a factor of two (the other percussion parts are not part of the scaling scheme). The motif therefore appears simultaneously at three different time scales.
If you're interested in doing a mix of this song, all tracks are available in either WAV or MIDI format. For more information on the many ways fractals can appear in music, visit the
