Further Possibilities

  • Music from the Fibonacci string based on substrings of different lengths combined melodically into one song. The resultant music could reveal different characteristics of order within the string.
  • Music from:
    • Strings that occur in mathematical problems (e.g., Tower of Hanoi and Lucas Number).
    • Strings that represent socioeconomic behavior such as stock market indices and consumer prices.
  • Combining related strings into a single composition:
  • For example, the amino acid sequence of a protein and its corresponding DNA sequence may be played simultaneously. A harmonious synchronization of notes between the two strings could be produced where the DNA sequence serves as a rhythmic percussion sequence.
  • Mathematica could be used to produce graphs of the spirals and tangent lines to the spirals simultaneously. The angles formed with a line from the origin could be measured to determine if these spirals are logarithmic or not.
