Digressions: What pi sounds like

16 Mar

Now isn’t this lovely – Michael John Blake, of the Quebec Antique project, delivers this sweet piece of music for Pi Day. This is a couple of days old, so many of you may have seen it, but well, here we are in ‘Misfit City’ and we’re no strangers to the idea of something arriving a bit late. So… a musical extrapolation of pi for a growing ensemble of piano, glockenspiel, accordion, autoharp, ukelele and more. I don’t know whether Michael had some idea in advance of how his number to notes-and-chords conversion would sound, but I like the result. Thanks to mixolydianblog for bringing it to my attention.

    Actually, it turns out that this is two years old. Still as fresh as a daisy, though. Oh well – even if this video is new and stimulating to just one reader, I’ve done my job.
