Alright all my math nerds out there, of course you know Pythagoras. Even our non-math nerds probably remember a^2 + b^2 = c^2! While Pythagoras himself may or may not have done all the things we attribute to him, one of the legends surrounding him is that he’s responsible for “discovering” or naming certain ratios that create consonance or dissonance. The most pleasing ratio to our ears is 3:2, also known as a “perfect fifth,” and it’s the basis for “Pythagorean tuning” that is often used today. We also see this concept of ratios applied in piano string lengths as well as those of other string instruments. Pythagoras's analysis of the physics of intervals (space between notes) outlined “harmonies” so well that he gets a lot of credit in music theory. Who knew!

This colorway plays neon pink, orange, and green speckles against a mostly black background.
