    In fact, I don't think that music is only mathematichs: Music is based on Maths.

    I think that the music has a mathemathical structure, but is an Art.

    Where math is in music is iv the making of the instruments with geometry.
    You probably wouldn't play a guitar that looked like a box. You would
    want one with the figure eight shape and a round hole in it for the sound
    unless it's electric.

    I read some days ago about Riemann's ipothesis.
    Zeros at sea levels on Riemann's zeta function can extimate very well the number of prime numbers < n. But the extime isn't perfect. You must insert on the graph sinusoidal waves (that they are also sound waves) and you get the exact number of prime numbers < n. If we take these sinusoidal waves, we get a music. The prime numbers music.
