The guitar track is only made audible around 1m12s and then fade out.

The penultimate note played by the percussions has been halved.

With thanks to Wim Vanderbauwhede-san (@wim_v12e) for inspiring me to make use of a "CAGE" seed.

Picture is a blend of the 3D Grundgestalt of "011112344" and of a photo I took at the Musée Universitaire de Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium,
