# Ever wondered what $$\pi$$ sounds like?

This musician wrote a song to memorize $$\pi$$, since it is easier to memorize musical melodies than strings of numbers. If you can hear the melody, you can figure out the numbers.

That's amazing. My dad teaches Music Theory at William and Mary, and I actually heard him play the piece and he wrote a wind quartet based on pi. :D

I thought I was the only one who played pi on the piano before, I played it in C major and it is very horrible haha...

That song is absolutely amazing! It almost sounds like an infinite curve.
