Pi is a LIE – this is what TAU sounds like

If you missed Pi day, you’re just in time to celebrate the day that honours its nemesis. Tau is the double of pi, corresponding to the date 6/28 or June 28, and to help mark the occasion, musician Michael Blake has created a musical interpretation of the constant (see video above). It maps tau, up to 126 decimal places, to musical notes. Earlier this year, Blake created a similar rendition for pi, that became popular online. Somehow, the melody of tau seems to be even more pleasing to the ear though.

If equations are trains threading the landscape of numbers, then no train stops at pi. – Richard Preston
