I have done a quick raid on google, and come up with a couple of music-and-maths quotes that set me thinking…
People always say that music and maths are connected; and indeed I studied both at university. It was then that I discovered that I was not a mathematician; I liked the kind of maths that had answers like “62” or “54.6”, and at university we spent our time supposing that “f(x) is a function of x such that” zzzzzz (I was usually asleep by then).
I like the concrete side of working with numbers, in the same was I like the real side of working with sound.
Anyway, here are two quotes, and the tracks that my thoughts took me down.
