Great Performances - What Pi Sounds Like

pi

This video has been circulating Facebook in anticipation of International Pi Day on March 14th (3/14). It does a great job of explaining the major scale and associated triads, then shows the performance of a piece of music incorporating those pitches and chords.


This piece is reminiscent of New Age music composed based on the Fibonacci series, the golden mean, and the ancient solfeggio scale. I find sacred geometry and cymatics to be fascinating and look forward to a future time when I can explore those concepts even more in my own compositions. My piece for concert band, entitled Diamond Dance, was based on the golden mean.
