Pi Day Song

March 14th, 2010 by Math Tricks | No Comments | Filed in Math Art

Happy Pi Day!  Pi day occurs each year on (Surprise!) 3-14.

I found a great video on youtube where a violin player composed a song using pi to 220 decimals.  The description reads:

Composed for PI Day! Imagine being able to hear PI as musical notes! This is a violin solo composed by Steven Rochen, based on the numbers of PI to 220 decimal places. Numbers were converted to notes: 0 = rest, 1=A, 2=A#…(10, 11, 12 as found in the sequence were treated as one note)

Here is the video – enjoy!
