According to this video from the popular science YouTube channel Vsauce the answer is “not very likely” which is a good thing I suppose otherwise I would be out of a job.

It seems that if you quantified all of the possible notes and rhythm combinations you get this amazingly huge but finite number however, whether these combinations of sounds are music to our ears is another thing.

This is a very, very cool video indeed. I do like the explanation on why we gravitate towards some types of song arrangements and not others.

It certainly gave me some food for thought. What about you?

In the meantime, enjoy the video and let me know what you think.

Peace,

Corey 🙂
