From the rich complexity of Bach to the catchy tunes we hum to children, music and math intersect in all kinds of interesting ways. Explore how math is used to create the music that we enjoy in a new WFMT digital video series, MATH IN MUSIC, hosted by internationally-renowned mathematician and pianist Dr. Eugenia Cheng. This 11-part series uncovers and explores, through Eugenia’s lively explanations and the use of fun and innovative visuals, how pleasurable patterns of rhythm, beat, harmony, and melody are mathematical expressions.
