Hello all! I am very happy to be a part of this class! I do paintings, compose music and improvise on a solo guitar. I have a MA in music (classical guitar performance). I also teach guitar and a small music composition class where we try to bring mathematics and music together, for example by "playing" matrix multiplication tables as combinations of notes, of left and right hand fingers. Mapping notes onto powerset lattices and thinking on possible ways to form tonal spaces and how players could interact with them. I am learning categories to abstract performers thinking processes, finger movements, music composition and improvisation patterns. I find the language of it very musical and relaxing. It somehow occupies a spiritual, meditative space without objects and it has greatly influenced my life by moving the attention from endless objects and labels to pure relations.
Last Summer I read "half a Plato" to experience the square root of 2. It is quite shocking. I need to read the other half this Summer. It would be interesting to map the Parmenides dialogue into a categorical platonic map, or in such case any other thinker or a writer..
