Math in Music

May 8, 2010
Music is buried in nature everywhere
Waiting only for the human ear to pay heed
A beat, a rhythm, a pattern to be felt
Music in actual fact, a math melody

Combinations of notes, results in a chord
Chords, the building blocks of harmony
Tonality, the total of harmony and melody
Melody of Math, pure felicity

Music is sound, of repeating sound waves
Harmonics are waves at proportional frequencies
Waveforms, acoustics and decibels all in play
Physics and Math both have their say.

Beats, repeated patterns, present in all things
Of course there always will be, some anomalies
Instruments of sound producing these melodies
Designed with math principles very much in mind
