Honors Seminar Class “We Can’t Math” Project

The semester’s seminar class, Math, Music, and Art, ended with a project incorporating ideas and theories learned throughout the semester. Two students, Nick Buzzelli and Gerry Walsh, decided to utilize the theories of math and music to create a new song, inspired by Paul Lansky’s “Notjustmoreiddlechatter.”

Various noises were recorded on an iPhone and ultimately imported to Ableton Live to be edited. The theories used to create the song were call and response, parallel transformation, relative transformation, and tone matrix.
