Four-part rhythmic canon

Today's canon is based on the same rhythmic "theme" as yesterday's.

Interestingly, it works nicely as a four-part canon. What I like about is is the rhythmic independence between the parts and the way the resultant rhythm (the combined iterations of all parts together) becomes more dense around the middle (to every eighth note) and then thins again to the end.

I'll likely use some of these as a basis for pitched canons, later.
