Music inspired by mathematics

Mathematical songs

I sincerely love this song, Pi. The image is taken from the movie Pi directed by Darren Aronofsky ( Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream ). ( The performer did not take credit for the lyrics. )

More serious, the lyrics on Kraftwerk's, ( visionary ) Computer World album, created in the early 1980s, described a world dominated by computers, like today. Kraftwerk had a major influence on the music of the 80s and 90s. The lyrics of Numbers, one of the songs on Computer World were abstract and mathematical. The video is recent ( 2010 ) and of HD quality. Enjoy!

It is not a coincidence that scientists and artists flock together. From the moment they become students they meet and interact. Scientists need to go off the main roads to find new undiscovered territory. In a sense artists guide them because they help them to think differently. Likewise artists are influenced by science.

A ballet choreographer speaks about dark matter, dark energy and the line between what we know and what we don't know.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
