  • YouTube’s favorite educational doodler Vi Hart is breaking into the beautiful world of music this week with her latest video, “Folding Space-Time.” After choosing music because it exists in time and one-dimensional pitch space (plus it’s fun to listen to and makes for an engaging video!), the Khan Academy mathematician offers a fun demonstration about the difference between musical notation and music that you can actually listen to.

    She also folds, flips, and cuts music, bringing it to our ears upside down, in glide rotation, and through an infinite loop.
