Ever wondered what π (Pi) would sound like as a song? Of course you haven’t. But musician Michael Blake of Quebec Antique plays his musical interpretation of the mathematical constant up to 31 decimal places in this here video. Basically, his sheet music looks like this: 3.1415926535897932384626433832795.

Using a piano, a bell set, an accordion, and his own hands, Blake takes the majors and minors at 157 beats per minute to further demonstrate the correlation between math and music. And for those of you who hated math as much as I did, 157 beats per minutes is coincidently 314 divided by two.
