pi10k – The Online Experiment That Meshes Math and Music

image

pi10k is a really cool experiment for anyone with a little bit of inner geekiness. Felix Jung has created a program that converts the first 10,000 digits of pi into a musical sequence. You select ten notes and your corresponding selection translates into an integer. As your computer cycles through the numbers of pi, it will play the note that you selected to correspond to that number. The result is not exactly beautiful, at least using the notes I selected, but it is really interesting.
