The Mathematics of Music

Musical artwork

As a student at LCC I was asked to explore the form of the triangle. With regards to its meaning, my interest in music led me to focus on the Pythagoreans and the triangular relationships on which music was first theorised and developed.

I chose to work with the Nokia Tune as it shows the deep connection between music and mathematics. I produced an artwork that presents the notes of the tune mathematically expressed in the form of roots according to the 12-TET equal temperament.
