Fiber Bundles is the sixth animation on Animusic 2. It features glowing pads activated by light that flows through fiber-optic cables.
The animation is set in a room bounded by alienistic dark green pipes, with colored tubes and pads that play when light flows through them from fiber-optic cables. The light flows through the cables at a visible speed, and so the cables probably are filled with supercold matter, called a Bose-Einstein condensate, which slows light down to a visible speed. The fact that the drums actually interact with these packets of lights is most likely due to there being glowing matter instead of light coming through their cables, which solidifies on contact with air, and evaporates on impact.
- eInstruments in the order they're presented:

- Towards the end of this piece's commentary on the DVD, Wayne Lytle remarks that the music in the Ratchet & Clank series, written by David Bergeaud, may have had some influence over this piece.
- The top note of the bass instrument plays an A near the beginning, but later it plays a B.
- The red synth shifts down an octave in the second half of the piece.
- There may be invisible aliens tapping their feet in this strobed light show, Wayne Lytle says.
