We kicked things off today with a video on Musical Fractals in jazz music that I came across this weekend. It is pretty awesome, and if you can get through the somewhat tricky bit in the middle, the pay off at the end is really cool (there’s another interesting video that Vox just released about the song central to this video – Coltrane’s Giant Steps – that I recommend checking out as well for an interesting lesson in music theory and the circle of fifths).
After this, we shared some of our planetary designs, and then finished off the Nova Documentary from last week.
Tomorrow, we start our work on understanding the mathematics of chaos. Don’t miss it!
