Musician Composes Pi Song on Piano
In order to help himself remember the digits of pi, David Macdonald decided to turn
each digit into a note on the A minor scale to play on the piano. He claims that now
he can hear the melody in his head, which allows him to recall the numbers in order.
He included a harmony with his left hand in order to round out the melody a bit.
During the video, fun facts about pi are shown in the corner as he plays the song.
