Leon Theremin's Rhythmicon, Original from the early 1960s, Sammlung Andrey Smirnov, © Andrey Smirnov

Ever since Pythagoras’s monochord experiments, mathematics have radically expanded our understanding of and the possibilities for producing and experiencing sound. At the same time music has a particularly intense effect when it exhibits qualities that are mathematically unpredictable. The second edition of Technosphärenklänge takes a look at the electrifying interconnections of music, mathematics and technology.
