Michael John Blake created a musical interpretation of the Pi, translating each of the first 31 decimals into a note and performing the piece on various instruments. Priceless, as Brainpicker said.

    Pi = circumference/diameter(d) = circumference/(2 x radius)

    hence circumference = 2 x Pi x radius(r)

    This video argues that Tau is more apt where

    Tau = circumference/radius(r)

    so circumference = tau x radius(r)

    leading to simplifications elsewhere in maths and leaving Euler’s i
    Identity as astonishing as ever.

    thanks, Mark, that’s really interesting!
