Alaric Rohl is from Castle Rock, Colorado studying mathematics and theatre while pursuing a pre-med track.
Under the guidance of Dr. Amir Zaheri in the music department, Alaric is attempting to create a new musical scale using irrational numbers (or numbers that have a repeating decimal). He is taking the sequence of decimals and reverse engineering properties about numbers utilizing music. He is hoping to find what the pitch frequencies sound like, where harmonies occur, or even whether a song could be composed from the sequence - they want to determine properties about the numbers they aleady know, similar to a control group. Alaric thinks the coolest outcome of the experiment is the possibility that there could be a new musical scale for composer to use when creating music.
