comScore Music Theory and Pi | The Mary Sue

Two Videos for Music Theory Nerds

it's time to play the music

I know you’re out there, music theory nerds. In a practice room, or brewing tea, or massaging your violinist’s hickey. (YesIwasinamarchingbandforeightyears.) Chances are, if you’re also reading this site, you’re a geek. If that’s the case, it’s also not unlikely that you once wrote a song based on π at some point in some class.  This video is for you.

And if you’d like a second video about the 50’s Progression (I vi IV V), used by Slipknot, Justin Beiber, the Beatles, Ritchie Valens and Rebecca Black.

Warning, you will spend most of this video trying to figure out if your literary tastes align with the singer’s. So far I’ve identified Sandman, Watchmen, and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Klay.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
