Subject: Video on the science and math of music
From: CapriUni
Date: 22 Aug 11 - 02:10 AM

I just now saw this video from the "Mathemusician" Vi Hart, whose YouTube channel is one of my all time favorites: Vihart.

Usually, she explains complex mathematics with simple, easy-to-follow doodles. But tonight, she posted a video explaining the physics, biology and mathematics of sound, and the whys and wherefores of how music, chords, and harmony work:

What's up with noises? (The Science and Mathematics of Sound, Frequency and Pitch)

And I knew I had to share this with 'Catters.

Oh, and she put this correction in the information for the video:

Correction: it is the "Basilar" membrane, which is what I say, but somehow between recording the script and actually drawing the stuff I got confused and thought I just pronounced my Vs poorly. Always sad to have such a simple and glaring error in something I put hundreds of hours of work into, but a "Vasilar" membrane can be the kind that a Vi draws to explain Viola Vibrations, I guess! Making up new words is just so prolightfully awstastic.


(Just to give you a taste of her style).

leeneia -- Yeah. I had that problem with her videos, too. But I was intrigued enough that I'd replay the vids several times, catching all the phrases I'd missed one by one.

Now, I think my brain just switches to "vi-mode," and speeds up its interpretation when I listen to her. So now I can get it on one go (The same thing happens when I listen to friends who have thick accents of one sort or another).

Desert Dancer: Yes, I think this is one of her best. Another video of hers that I almost posted here is on writing music based on Pi, and how some people try to copyright the number for music writing.

Yeah!, wish my brain understood at the speed she speaks at.
Will have to watch that one again.

Thanks for posting - a clearer explanation would be hard to find.

JohnB: When I started watching her videos, I just relaxed and enjoyed the sound and rhythm of her voice (a bit like listening to all the notes in a double jig, actually), rather than stressing over trying to keep up.

Smokey: Yes. She's very good (if fast), at explaining things.

A couple of days ago, Vi Hart uploaded another video where she examines some ideas of music and science. This time, as a slow, original, and (in my opinion) beautifully sung blues song.

Low-Frequency Blues

(She includes her lyrics in her information)
