The Fibonacci Sequence is a series of numbers
where each number is the sum of the previous two numbers.
The numbers in the sequence
have extraordinary mathematical properties
and can be found in patterns all throughout nature,
so I decided to see what they would sound like as music.
To create the melody, I assigned the numbers 1 through 8
to the E major scale on the keyboard
and added 0 and 9 on each side
with the natural extension of the scale.
I played the resulting melody with my right hand
and added harmonies with my left hand.
Now, the first number of the Fibonacci Sequence is 0.
But 0 added to itself just equals 0 forever.
In fact, that’s what you’ve been hearing in the background.
In order to start the sequence, we need to add a 1.
