Math Meets Art in Greg Davis’ “New Primes” 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

Since Euclid proved the infinitude of prime numbers in 300 BCE, mathematicians have gained fame by determining sequences of them. There are Pierpont primes, Cullen primes, Proth primes, and Sophie Germain primes, each named after their discoverer. New Primes, the new album by Greg Davis, uses these groups of numbers to create massive, dissonant, slowly evolving expanses of sound. Using the music programming software Max/MSP, Davis creates pure sine tones whose frequency, rhythm, and spatialization are determined by the mathematical relationships between numbers in these sets.
