This piece uses the EIA E24 standard resistor value series as if it were a musical scale. It is roughly 24-part equal division of a 10:1 frequency ratio, which works out to a little more than seven notes per octave, but the pitches are not quite equally spaced. The composition actually only uses about half of them - chosen by simulated annealing using some idiosyncratic rules of consonance and counterpoint.
