Most consider music to be expressive and emotional leaving little or .

What most fail to realize is that there is mathematics within .

all music and sound for that matter. Music is littered with mathematical frequencies.

and such. There isn't ant type of sound that does not involve math in some way. .

I found it fairly easy to understand how math was related to music once exploited properly.

It is thought that a mathematical connection lies within the musical. .

Listeners of J. S. Bach claim that his music is carefully planned with math. His works .

are so full on the emotional, technical, and even intellectual levels, it seems only .

natural that they might be also be mathematically built. Many mathematical patterns.

have been discovered in his music, more so then most others of his time. In the past .

repetition has been used among all great composers.

As all advocates of music know, repetition is a vital statistic in all music. .

Great composers such as Bach use repeated themes with great mathematics to create .

stunning musical pieces. Most musicians notice that songs repeat and build on a simple little tune that is recreated to become more complicated. Repetition has played a huge role in creating music using mathematics. .

Mathematics have played a huge roll figuring out why the chromatic scale is .

made up of only twelve notes. Why not sixteen notes or five hundred for that .

matter? There are many theories for this. It could simply be the natural human perception of sound. It could also work along the lines of the mathematical frequency of music.

.

All sound can be based on a mathematical frequency. Whenever you hear a note, a number can represent it. For example, I am going to give a default value of 1 for the pitch of C. An octave above this (still C), would therefore be 2, and an octave above that would have a frequency of 4 (also, halving would produce lower octaves of C (i.e. 0.5, 0.25, 0.125 etc.
