WINNING!: Musician turns Pi into music

(CBS) - If you haven't surmised for yourself already from my postings, have I ever mentioned that I am a humongous geek? This video is precisely the kind of thing I get goosebumps over - a musician, Michael John Blake, converts the mathematical number Pi into music!!

The music starts at 47 seconds into the video and builds towards an amazing crescendo, but it's also worthwhile to see the explanation for how the conversion occurs. Definitely worth geeking out about if you're into math, music or just love fascinating new ideas.
