The World's Ugliest Music - music without repetition is hard

I would be a better person if I was better at maths. I'm not sure I regret finding a loophole in the university system in order to duck out of the tough math class and into the easy one - only never to show up again until exam day was a success or a failure.

This TEDx video reminds me why maths is worthy of attention more often than not.

Scott Rickard oozes degrees. He's a smart man. In this talk he sets us up to listen to the World's Ugliest Music. Music, you see, makes use of repetition. The question what would music that did not use any repetition sound like turns out to be an interesting maths challenge.
