Pi Day was dreamed up 27 years ago to celebrate 3.14 on 3/14, but this year the geek dial is being turned up to 15 — as in 3/14/15. And this’ll be the only year until 2115 that you can turn the dial up to the max, at 3/14/15, 9:26:53, an exact match for pi’s first 10 digits.

**Pi? It’s all relative**

What is it about pi that tickles our geek glands? There’s something mystical about the number, which is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Even the ancients puzzled over its value; the Bible famously set it at 3. Today, it’s been calculated out to more than 13 trillion digits with no end in sight.

*As an abstract mathematical concept, pi is immutable. “Pi is what it is,” said Brian Koberlein, an astrophysicist at the Rochester Institute of Technology.*

But pi is squishier as a real-world measurement. In fact, Koberlein says Einstein’s general theory of relativity dictates that pi can’t be derived precisely by actually measuring a circle. “In a curved universe, you can never really get pi, because nothing is going to be perfectly flat,” he told NBC News.

Speaking of circles – remember pi? Pi has been represented by the Greek letter “π” and you may recall learning about it in geometry or trig class.

**Mathematics review time**

Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. It is an irrational number—approximately 3.14159 and its decimal representation never ends. Additionally, pi never settles into a permanent repeating pattern.

**Trippy, right?**

So why the hell are we thinking about this crazy number right now?

Because folks, someone has taken this infinite, irrational number and created something beautiful with it.

**A musician named Michael Blake has interpreted pi to 31 decimal places.**

How does one make music out of math? Mr. Blake assigned a number to each musical note and created a composition by playing out the numerical digits of pi.

*(A brief explanation of the numerical assignment is given at the start of the video below.)*
