Day 25: Music and Mathematics
This evening was the PSCTM Fall Dinner: Where Math Meets Music: The Harmonic Series. Sean Richarz who teaches Band, Jazz Band, Music and Popular Culture and Guitar along with being a performer in the area as a trumpet player, conductor and the lead guitar player in his Pink Floyd Tribute band “Green Floyd”shared his thoughts about where math meets music. We looked at scales, the harmonic series, sound waves (our beloved sine waves) and transformations in light of music composition. It was really fascinating to experience how the mathematics sounds!
