Happy Pi Day Everyone! Watch some geeks transpose Pi to music

Happy Pi Day (3/14) everyone! In celebration, I thought you might like to hear some very nerdy musicians applying note theory to the numbers of Pi. There’s a pretty good description at the beginning of the video, but essentially, the artist assigns a number to each note from the bottom of a music staff to the top. They can then play the notes that correspond with each subsequent number of Pi.

Things get really awesome at 2:24 when a Banjo comes in. Enjoy!
