    keys that are one octave apart have the frequency ratio of 2:1. Further inspection shows that two adjacent notes are in the ratio of 1.059… For example: Freq. of A#3 / freq. of A3 = 233.1 Hz / 220 Hz = 1.059… Freq. of C4 / freq. of B3 = 261.6 Hz/ 246.9 Hz = 1.059… Freq. of G4 / freq. of F#4 = 392.0 Hz / 370.0 Hz = 1.059… The examples show that the frequency of any note is a product of the frequency of the adjacent note before it and the constant number 1.059. Proof: Let an octave start from key A

    surprise that this harmonic mean can be applied to nearly all types of music. Basically, a harmonic mean-as it applies to music-~is any possible division between an original note and the octave of that note that produces a different note. With that, there is a sequence in the divisions between a note and its octave that is not very consistent in distance from the original note. One instrument in particular that can demonstrate this type of mean is the vioiin because of the harmonic tones produced whenever

  • Mathematics In Music : The Relationship Of Mathematics And Music

    706 Words  | 3 Pages

    Math can be seen in all aspects of life, whether you notice it is prevalent or not. As a result, almost every aspect of life can be boiled down to a specific group of mathematical concepts. Similarly, art forms, especially music, can be analyzed through the eye of math and therefore be fully inspected, observing how certain chords and notes sound more harmonious than others. Mathematics and music have a closer relationship than most people realize. Mathematics and music are directly related and
