Continuing this week’s theme of mathematics I decided to further explore the relationship between math’s and music. I’ve long been vaguely aware of their relationships from ted talks and math metal but most recently the adverts I’ve been seeing for study tracks.
Being a hobbyist at both maths and music, I felt it best to let some experts better explain how music works but first a Foamy the Squirrel sketch:
The Maths of Music (14m)
This video explains the mathematics behind music and music theory.
“Ugly music” (tedx) (10m)
These two tedx videos explore what makes music Ugly or Beautiful.
Now without further ado:
- Dragon Curve muisc video/numberphile
- fibonacci music
- Golden Ratio Song/Numberphile math metal
- Pi Prog Rock/Numberphile
- “Trypophobic” music from Numberphile’s Mandelbrot Set
- Nosferatu Man/Slint/Spiderland
- userspace/the algorithm/brute force
Information about songs/bands
- Dragon curve unfolding and multiplying to music.
- Fibonacci sequence played on piano
- Math Metals helped compose this song
- Some notes about “the devils cords”
- A song inspired by the mandelbrot set, also I might be a little bit trypophobic.
- math rock
