Leon Harkleroad (2006). The Math Behind the Music. Cambridge University Press. ISBN 0-521-81095-7.
A book on math and music, with such an ugly cover… how not to look like a nerd with all that… whatever… the book was really good and not that nerdy anyway !
In the fact, the first interesting feature is that the author wrote the book for non-mathematician and non-musician. Well, I guess you have to be interested a little bit in one or the other to read it, but it’s true: you don’t need to know any mathematical stuff and the only required musical concept is about the most basic structure of musical scores.
Lately, some friends of mine enlightened quite a few of my evenings at Paris, by playing music and — I should say — stubbornly making use of a fair amount of talent in doing so :).
Now, I guess the least I can do is to thank them by pointing at them from here:
First part: The Herbaliser
And then: De La Soul
… hard to resist.
Juste pour marquer le coup et saluer au passage des zicos de ma connaissance:
beedjay — Funky/Groovy: ousqu’on se demande si c vraiment sa guitare qui est branchée sur le 220
DJ Kush — Drummy/Bassy: ousqu’il parait qu’on serait lié, mais ca n’est surement qu’une rumeur ;)
Et dire que c ça qui va nous engloutir tous dans un énorme trou noir :D
