Therefore, I contend that music based on aperiodicity is more corporeal and rooted in our existence more than "dance" music or march music.
In conclusion, vertical and horizontal organization - expressed as harmony and rhythm - follow parallel processes, since the harmonic motion (inharmonicity toward harmonicity) is imitated in the temporal domain by the motion of aperiodicity toward periodicity.
Clearly, this passage, too, follows a path from aperiodicity to periodicity.

For instance, one can start with a group of sine harmonics and progressively inject aperiodicity into the sound by varying the frequency and the amplitude of the harmonics.
