The two to three orbital relation between Neptune and Pluto translates to human scale as a recognizable rhythm. Beyond Pluto, there are smaller bodies in the Kuiper belt, some of which are also resonant with Neptune. For example, some orbit the Sun twice and others thrice, in the time of five Neptune orbits. The resulting 2:3:5 resonance translates into less familiar human music.
