The Sound of Root Rectangles

Following on my previous post/geometry quiz (won by Tom from Geneva, his prize is currently being considered) here is a musical rendering of that pattern, well, the root rectangles aspect anyway.

This PC Set/Chord is based on simple root rectangles (approximate, could go microtonal for more accuracy perhaps). Intonation isn`t great, most of the instruments are new (to me). Working with projective geometry now which is yielding some interesting results (has a counterpoint and register aspect too). Will come back to this root rectangles thing (it has a dominant 7th in it which I didn`t expect, a bit like the Spanish Inquisition). Also I need more hats and sunglasses.
