Mathematical music

…yes, I know all music is mathematical but that was the title on the first video and the second and fourth are a practical illustration of that truth :)

    Is it a substitute for the genius of the pause and the tonal variations?

    I love these fantasy machines, and can’t wait for someone to create a good live concert by an imaginary alien.

    We mostly think of ourselves ‘listening’ to music and being affected by it. Here we think about it too. But that is us, passively apprehending. Having fun.

    But before that there is the brain making it. Just like the strings and drums, the flats and bells being hit by ping-pong balls and hammers, there is a sequence of chemo-electrical bursts from neurones that travel down axons and out through dendrites to connect via synapses to get…. yet another sequence of chemo-elctrical bursts somewhere. That sequence was the brain having lots of fun well before we heard anything. And without us thinking it up !!

    And that’s not all folks. Those electrical flows down the axons ‘massaged’ and powered the actions of the micro-tubules wherin superpositional quantum particles ‘appeared’ out of ‘nowhere’ and collapsed into coherence from a constriction of their quantum fields within that axonal electrical flow field. Just like the ping-pong balls appearing out of the tubes.
