The music of Pi

The music of Pi

We all know that π is an irrational number, meaning that it is a real number which cannot be written as a fraction.

This website, π , takes the first 100,000 digits of π and assigns each number between 2 and 9 a musical note. When a 1 or a 0 pops up, this changes the display to day and night respectively.

The actual sound is almost reminiscent of a Bjork song and is definitely worth checking out.
