Music and Mathematics (Alex Ho)

Posted on

Music and mathematics are not usually thought of to have any
sort of relationship at all. But throughout the course of the video, I have
come to realise how closely linked they are. Learning that even fractions play
a part in the notes used for playing an instrument really changed my view on it.
Before watching the video, I had only thought of the piano notes as just dots
with tails, but now I see that mathematics has a link to it, which is quite
fascinating.

In another video we learnt that although unable to hear his
music, Beethoven managed to produce beautiful musical pieces, simply through
visualising it using mathematics. To me, this really came as a shock, as I previously
hadn’t known much about Beethoven and how the composed music was appeasing to
the listener.
