Today I read a paper titled “Music By Numbers”
The abstract is:
In this paper we present a mathematical way of defining musical modes, we derive a formula for the total number of modes and define the musicality of a mode as the total number of harmonic chords whithin the mode.
We also give an algorithm for the construction of a duet of melodic lines given a sequence of numbers and a mode.
We attach the .mus files of the counterpoints obtained by using the sequence of primes and several musical modes.
