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. ;) Todd
