What is the fundamental relationship between music and math? I read on a website, something about this guy wanting to make wind chimes. But then he went into detail about how the original scales equaled 255 but the western scales were 264 or something like that. Im a computer person and I know 255 (or 256 depending on where you start) is a fundamental number. So assuming my post made at least a little sense to anybody, what is the connection?
