Gratuitous Musickal Posting (TM) - Marriage of Math and Music Dept.

This is a cool toy. It allows you to select ten notes at random, converts them into integers and then cycles through the first 10,000 digits of pi, playing the note given for each integer as it comes up and thus creating a musical sequence representing pi's value.

I tried it a couple of times with major and minor arpeggios and then with more random sequences of notes. Pretty interesting and, at least with the broken chords, strangely soothing.

I guess you could call it Pi-Tunes. M'heh.

Yips! to Eugene Volokh.
