Happy pi day everyone! For those
not mathematically inclined, 3/14 is a day celebrated each year
to celebrate the wonder that is pi. This year we present to you
a short composition based on the digits of pi.
This is a brilliant and beautiful in-
terpretation of the first few dozen
digits but fails to capture the full
power of pi. Pi, you see, is tranc-
endental. That means, in short,
that it is non re- peating and non
terminating. A consequence of
that fact is that it contains every
finite series there is. Contained in
the near random infinite sequence
that is pi, is every song every written;
Beethoven’s 9th, Hey Jude and Sexy
Back are all there. Concealed in
pi is the sequence of art.
I challenge our audience to name every instrument appearing in the video.
This song was created by Micheal John Blake. I suspect that this little wonder will quickly become a geek favourite around this time each year. Apparently it’s gotten enough attention that the composer will be appearing on NPR’s Morning Edition on Monday(Which I understand is the natural alternative to sleeping pills for Americans).
