Of Math and Music
[In regard to “Musical Numbers,” Summer 2014]: Fascinating article. As a musician, I’ve always believed that music is a form of math, and math is also an art form. Music is math, and time, and physics. Incidentally, I just finished reading a novel that combines music and time travel. (It’s called Time Signature, by fellow Wisconsinite Carlo Kennedy, and I highly recommend it.)
As someone who has promoted the arts for the past forty-five years (and as a professional musician), this is a refreshing confirmation of what research has shown us — amazing connections between the various arts and other academic disciplines. Thank you for this wonderful article, which I will promote in our next newsletter [for Arts/Learning in Natick, Massachusetts].
