Mathematical Impressions: Making Music with a Möbius Strip From Quanta (Find original story here). The connections between mathematics and music are many. For example, the differential equations of vibrating strings and surfaces help us understand harmonics and tuning systems, rhythm analysis tells us the ways a measure can be divided into beats, and the study of symmetry relates to the translations in time and pitch that occur in a fugue or canon. This video explores a less well-known connection. It turns out that musical chords naturally inhabit various topological spaces, which show all the possible paths that a composer can use to move between chords.

Syncopations Preface DefinitionA syncopation can best be defined as - the prolongation of a note attacked on an Off-beat to the next Beat. It is usually anticipated (attacked sooner) , but we have left a section open at the end, for cases where it is retarded (attacked later). Anticipated Syncopations One may anticipate by different amounts (note-values) and we will catalogue these amounts by the corresponding rhythmic level - a Carole King's Gershwin Prize Awarded By President Barack Obama - The Huffington Post WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama, saluting Carole King's five decades as an award-winning singer-songwriter, said Wednesday that music often is a place where people seek comfort and inspiration during trying times.
