From the site:

Binary numbers used as rhythms (not to be confused with binary rhythms) can be used in music to create a mathematical aspect to a piece which can be heard and appreciated by mathematicians, yet still be pleasant to the ears of the uninitiated. Even someone who has never heard of binary numbers can still understand the patterns on an intuitive level. Binary numbers, especially those affiliated with computer science, have a structure which goes very well with the standard forms of music.
