I love when people intentionally mix together mathematics and art, and one of the best examples of this merger that I’ve seen for awhile can be found here. As the site itself says, “this experiment attempts to convert the first 10,000 digits of pi into a musical sequence.” You have the ability to choose several preset music scales, or can choose 10 notes either manually or randomly. It takes a few minutes to play through the sequence, and the sounds are quite transfixing. Even though this meshing of pi and music is somewhat artificial, the result is wonderful. It’s worth checking out.
