Where Music and Engineering Meet

Mathematics is a universal language. No matter where one travels, two and two will always equal four, one plus one will always equal two, and so on and so forth. Even if you are dealing with a primitive people whose language is unknown to you and the rest of the world, they will still be able to add and subtract.

In the same manner, music is a universal tongue. While certain types of music may not appeal to everyone, people the world over know music when they hear it. And they will react to it as humans will.
