"Twenty Thirteens" is an instrumental piece.

To my mind, it conjures up renderings of numbers.

Like music, Mathematics is a language.

Music differs from pure mathematical thought however;

in a math equation, two plus two always equals four regardless of one's mood .

In music, the way one feels can make the sum greater than the whole.

This possibility, that two plus two

could equal something greater than four

is what makes music more than it's mathematics

...more than some quirk of an evolutionary artifact,

more than this.

“The difference between the poet

and the mathematician

is that the poet tries to get his head

into the heavens

while the mathematician

tries to get the heavens into his head.”

― G.K. Chesterton
