Note: The original song is over 10 minutes long, I decided to cut the outro short for the map.

This is most definitely a map, for what’s most definitely a song. It also may or may not be over 70 hours of my time spent mapping it, and trying to get it into something palatable.

Flutter was released in 1994 and the cover of the album read like this:
“Flutter has been programmed in such a way that no bars contain identical beats and can therefore be played at 45 or 33 revolutions under the proposed law. However we advise DJs to have a lawyer and musicologist present at all times to confirm the non-repetitive nature of the music in the event of police harassment.

Important:
By breaking this seal, you accept full responsibility for any consequential action resulting from the product’s use, as playing the music contained within these recordings may be interpreted as opposition to the Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill.”

Indeed, this song has an amazing ability to sound both very repetitive and completely chaotic simultaneously, though in the process of mapping it I have gained a lot of familiarity with it, and surprised at how carefully layered the repetition is in this song.

I have tried to capture this in the way it is mapped.

I have to mention the valuable input of @SkyeWint in choosing the best representation I could for this map.
