Aria, by The Brothers Zoto, is a rearrangement of the Aria from Bach's Goldberg Variations. It uses a shorthand compositional style that highlights complex vertical or harmonic moments in the Aria's melodic form.

The piece is performed on an instrument using an alternate temperament, one of many, referring to a particular version of a Pythagorean scale.

The second half has an additional randomly generated sub bass part. All of the instruments use sine waves as the basic building tone of the sound.
