Where Sound, Science and Math Meet

Musrelaxed-young-man-loving-music-enjoying-nature_1262-3611.jpgic is a particularly funny art form, as it's to the naked-eye, completely invisible. However, if you've got the speakers up very high and booming, you can see the windows or items in the room/car bounce. How about the feeling of getting chills from sound? What is creating this?
 
Sound in its purest form is a series of vibrational waves. When an object vibrates, it creates movement through air particles that bounce from one to the next, creating the wave format. 

The speed rate of the of waveform coincides with the pitch. "If the vibration is fast, the note is high. If the vibration is slow, the note is low". One additionally incredibly interesting factoid is that there is no sound in space, it is completely silent. This is due to the fact that
there needs to be an additive to the origin of sound, as it needs to travel through a particle such as water or air, in order for it to be processed and recognized. 
 
Regarding the mathematical aspects of sound, some have said that "Science is the music of the intellect, and Music is the science of the heart".  The basis of music theory is built on the idea of the pitch size of intervals between notes.

An incredibly insightful quote is as follows ""There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres" said by Pythagoras himself. As  abstract as music is, breaking sound down through math is one sure-fire way to eventually begin to understand the interweavings of the waveform structure.
 
Music theory gives the musician the tools it needs to communicate what is occuring.
