This is quite an effective way of depicting the relative orbital periods of the planets as they circle around the sun. As a bonus, each planet makes a musical note when it completes its orbit. If nothing else, it illustrates just how long it takes the outer planets to orbit the sun (248 Earth years, in the case of Pluto).
