Hurricanes, galaxies, sunflowers and succulents all have inherent spiral shapes that conform almost perfectly to the ‘golden spiral’, which is derived from a mathematic formula. A golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral with a growth factor of ‘Phi’, which is the golden ratio – that means it gets wider by a factor of Phi for every quarter turn it makes.
Things I never explored at The College Conservatory. Fibonacci sequence in music? The only issue I see is the 12 Tone equal tempered octave (culture created). I'm not sure this is the best try at Math and and a Golden ratio, But it's quite beautifully played. I believe it's Bach. It should be played on a Harpsichord :-)
