John Coltrane Draws a Picture Illustrating the Mathematics of Music

John Coltrane Draws a Picture Illustrating the Mathematics of Music
Physicist and saxophonist Stephon Alexander has argued in his many public lectures and his book The Jazz of Physics that Albert Einstein and John Coltrane had quite a lot in common. Alexander in particular draws our attention to the so-called “Coltrane circle,” which resembles what any musician will recognize as the “Circle of Fifths,” but incorporates Coltrane’s own innovations. Coltrane gave the drawing to saxophonist and professor Yusef Lateef in 1967, who included it in his seminal text, Repository of Scales and Melodic Patterns. Where Lateef, as he writes in his autobiography, sees Coltrane's music as a "spiritual journey" that "embraced the concerns of a rich tradition of autophysiopsychic music," Alexander sees “the same geometric principle that motivated Einstein’s" quantum theory. Neither description seems out of place. Coltrane was also very much aware of Einstein’s work and liked to talk about it frequently.

(Re)découvertes de l'été - 8 - Générateurs de tests de tables - Charivari à l'école Voici 7 fichiers qui permettent de générer automatiquement des tests de tables d’addition, de soustraction, de multiplication ou de division en choisissant les tables testées (3 tests par page ou 1 seul grand test, suivant le fichier choisi).

On peut, par exemple, faire faire un graphique de suivi de leur score aux élèves… Remarque de fond : Je ne sais pas vous, mais de mon côté, quand je demande à mes élèves de réviser la table de multiplication par 3, j’attends qu’ils sachent aussi bien répondre à 7×3 qu’à 3×7. Remarque de forme : pour économiser du papier, des photocopies, et coller le test sur un petit cahier, ces tests restent tout à fait lisibles et « remplissables » imprimés en demi-format, avec l’option « 2 pages par feuille » (Kesaco ?

What is "Normal"? This Physician's Brilliant Answer Will Make You Stop and Think. In the video below, renowned physician and best-selling author Gabor Maté answers this question by sharing his knowledge and wisdom on this important yet immensely complex issue. In particular, Dr. Maté is pointing out that the concept of “normal” is actually just a myth or an artificial mental construct, while revealing how mental distress and pathology are mainly a consequence of our modern materialistic, consumption-driven, soul-sucking culture.

Che rumore faceva Parigi nel Settecento? | Flashes In Kirghizistan, l’11 dicembre si terrà un referendum su una riforma costituzionale che fra le altre cose espanderà i poteri del primo ministro. In molti temono che sia una misura studiata dal presidente Moldakun Abdyldayev per accentrare i poteri nel governo, molto legato alla sua figura. Nel frattempo però è sorto un altro problema: non si trova il testo originale della Costituzione. Il ministero della giustizia dice che ne ha solo una copia e che l’originale ce l’ha la presidenza della Repubblica, la quale dice che invece pensava che fosse nelle mani del ministero.

In particular, you should try to stick to your normal routine and behaviour. 3. If you are a high-risk source and the computer you prepared your submission on, or uploaded it from, could subsequently be audited in an investigation, we recommend that you format and dispose of the computer hard drive and any other storage media you used. In particular, hard drives retain data after formatting which may be visible to a digital forensics team and flash media (USB sticks, memory cards and SSD drives) retain data even after a secure erasure. If you do this and are a high-risk source you should make sure there are no traces of the clean-up, since such traces themselves may draw suspicion. 4. If a legal action is brought against you as a result of your submission, there are organisations that may help you.

Giuseppe Cambiano. Platone: musica e matematica Giuseppe Cambiano, professore emerito di Storia della Filosofia Antica presso la Scuola normale superiore di Pisa, intervistato al Festival della Filosofia di Modena 2017, parla degli insegnamenti di matematica e musica nell’Accademia platonica. La musica per i greci, era intesa in senso molto più ampio rispetto a come la intendiamo oggi, era l’arte delle Muse, la cultura letteraria musicale in senso generale e aveva una funzione essenziale per la formazione e del carattere dei giovani. La musica è anche studio dei rapporti numerici e la matematica ha una funzione essenziale per la filosofia perché ci fa fare un salto dalla considerazione degli oggetti puramente sensibili alla considerazione delle forme universali, che sono per esempio le forme geometriche che vengono studiate nelle loro proprietà generali. La funzione conoscitiva della matematica è straordinaria perché ci premettere di cogliere le proprietà generali delle cose ed è la via che ci conduce alla filosofia. Tags
