Hm. I wonder if it'd be possible to work out rules for musical
arithmetic. Operations like adding, subtracting, multiplying, or
dividing two musical phrases. After that it'd be a simple leap to
create a musical algebra. Calculus might be harder...give a whole new
definition to 'roots' music. :)
I find there is a certain beauty in the relationships between various
numbers (11*11 = 121, as a very simple example) and I wonder if
similar beauty or symmetry would arise with regard to music
manipulated in this manner.
Sounds like we need to find us a mathematics major before we go too
much further. ;)
