The Fibonacci sequence in music
A few weeks back there was a really interesting article in the Guardian newspaper (UK) about the Fibonacci sequence and applying it to music. The article was written by Vijay Iyer an American of Indian descent , who writes and performs on piano. After reading the article I checked out his track “Mystic River” on the Historicity album. It’s seriously good and you can hear it on Spotify if it available in your country.

I realise the Fibonacci sequence might not have any application to Irish Trad. (Or does it? It seems to have come up before in previous discussion on this board.) Mathematics and music seem to have an affinity.
