"Brady Haran over at Numberphile has brought us an amazing experimental track based on Pi. Everything follows patterns of the irrational number, and the result is a mind-blowing progressive rock song. This expands upon the concept first tried with the Golden Ratio song. Notice the length of the video?"

    I never thought of it as the actual "sound" of Pi. It's creative work, there's no doubting it. However, it is made by mapping our knowledge of Pi to other kinds of knowledege we have, involving maths to do part of that mapping. Bases are arbitrary, the instruments are arbitrary, everything is pretty much arbitrary, but they didn't build the music and search for patterns, they made it with the patterns. It doesn't really matter to me if they're the most X or Y patterns -- they are patterns.
