My science fair topic is mathematical sequences found in music. I used a frequency chart from the website www.techlib.com
and wrote down the frequencies for the notes in the first eight measures of three different selections of music (one classical, one rock, and one Irish). I tried to analyze the data I collected and couldn't find any mathematical sequences whatsoever. But, I'm pretty sure there's supposed to be mathematical sequences and I think I'm just analyzing the data wrong. Is there an easier form of measurement to figure out mathematical sequences found in music?
