Sixteen Harmonics

This example plays the first sixteen harmonics based on a fundamental frequency where the rate at which each harmonic play is period / # of harmonic. For example, with a period of 10000 ms—meaning the fundamental plays every 10000 ms—the 4th harmonic will be heard every 10000/4 ms, or 2500 ms.

Pseudo-random numbers appear random

Programming languages all provide some means of generating random numbers. Those numbers aren’t truly random, though. They’re what’s called pseudo-random. They’re actually generated by a known, deterministic process for generating a sequence of numbers, but that process generates a long series of apparently random numbers that doesn’t repeat for a very long time.
