Music: a story of proportion. A bit of theory… As early as Antiquity, Pythagoras managed to mathematically calculate the sound ratios of the most harmonious musical intervals. The interval between two notes is measured by calculating the frequency ratio between the highest note and the lowest note.
It was composed between 17 and illustrates in a remarkable way how the art of musical writing can be explained by mathematics. The fugue is a musical form where different parts take up the same motif.
The political aspect of music connects citizens who also share an intimate being-together.
No wonder we enjoy listening to music while exercising: music stimulates and encourages physical exertion because it literally “turns on” all areas of our brain, not just the auditory area (which corresponds to the region of the brain responsible for interpreting sounds).
