Introduction. What does an exponential waveform have to do with music and the notes we recognize? I discovered a mathematical function that displays a key insight into the unit of musical harmony. The motivation for finding this function was to see if there was a linear way to describe all the ratios in the chromatic scale (Pythagorean tuning). Pythagorean tuning is based on chains of fourths and fifths combined to reach every single note. Abstract. Tuning systems are based on…
