  1. Extremely useless. You are saying that because he used dissonance as a resource, he knew how to write music while getting deaf. Thumbs down…

  2. On the graphs shown, what is plotted on the y-axis? I understand it is a function of time (on the x-axis), but what about the y?

  3. Congratulations, you just explained a concept that practically all musicians use πŸ˜‘ woahh, major triads, so clever.

  4. Great film but you’ve got a mistake at 2:14.
    When A4 is played you actually played D and when D4 is played you actually played A.

  5. This is completely backwards. Math measures the physics behind the music, but it doesn’t create the music. Beethoven created music. The math can explain “what” he created but it doesn’t say anything about “how” he created it. Whoever put this together might be a good mathematician in order to find the mathematical ratios behind the tones and their overtones, but he or she has not addressed the creation of music. This explains what it is, not how it was made.

  6. You might be rite abt the maths and technicality but u should know bethoveen was very bad at maths and couldn’t understand it and that maths doesn’t matter in music because “Music is not at all technic but is speak of the very soul of an individual”

  7. Totally false.he could hear all notes,patterns and sequences inside his with his genious and imagination,no need to hear clearly and even to see ,to compose music

  8. I would love a knitting pattern for consonance and dissonance. This lecture is quite beyond me except for points here and there. I will learn And return. Thank you.
