This Is Why I Love Computers

What I know about music honestly (as George once said here) would not fill the thimble of a small-fingered seamstress. But this is an astonishingly cool visualization, which makes clear something about the relationship of music and math that I’ve always known was there, but never really got. And which makes me wish I knew more. (Hat tip: Ezster.)

  1. Wow. Fabulous.

    Have you ever read Hofstadter’s amazing book G??del, Escher, Bach?

  2. That is pretty cool. Kind of mesmerizing. Hofstadter, btw, was one of Mr. Geeky’s advisors.
