In Memory of Pi(e) Day: A Sensory Experience of Sight, Smell, Taste, and Sound

Pi Day? Pie Day. It’s been 12 days, but it’s never too late to celebrate pi(e) day, says Alan Rodi ’12. Experimental Music students and pie-eaters, take note:

A concert in three movements of flavours.

$2 suggested minimum donation for a slice of pie; proceeds go to Brighter Dawns. There will be a limited number of slices available.

The piece is an attempt in making experimental music accessible. Inspired in part by In C, musicians will follow a score of a section of melodic passages around a shifting tonal center, but the means of getting from passage to passage is indeterminate and the only time marker is a single bell that rings between the three movements.

The concert runs exactly 30 minutes with an additional short intermission between the second and third movement for pie distribution. Note: scented incense and deliciously smelling pies will be used during the performance. Any additional musicians should please contact Alan Rodi at arodi(at)wesleyan(dot)edu and be prepared to meet an hour before the schedule time to briefly review the piece.

Happy Pi Day!

Today, March 14, is Pi Day – so named because the date expressed numerically, 3/14, contains the first three digits of the number pi (3.14…). In honor of Pi Day 2011, here are two excellent musical interpretation of the most famous infinitely non-repeating number:

Enjoy break, everyone!
