Simply Trying to Hear It

This video by “recreational mathemusician” Vi Hart, called “Twelve Tones,” is half an hour long, in addition to which, once you watch it, you’ll want to watch it again. It’s so worth it. I’m not sure how it’ll be to watch if you have no music literacy whatsoever, but in case it’s helpful, here’s the Wikipedia page about the twelve-tone technique. (Personally, I think you can get a lot out of the video even if you don’t understand everything that’s going on – and it may make you want to go out and learn new things! It did for me.)
