Hello,

I was thinking, about the similarity between music and rubik's cube and I made this video, I want to now what do you think, what else can we do with music and Rubik's cube? :)

Thanks, and have a nice day!

Being a progressive metal fan and ex-drummer, that wasn't very musical, or maybe I just don't understand the rhythm. It's a cool concept though!

Interesting...

On a very similar note, I mentioned once that a nxmxk cube could be used as
a musical instrument. For example, the nine possible movement combinations
of the 3x3x3 cube could be used as the needed musical notes to play a tune.

Of course, the same applies for any puzzle mechanism, and I am actually just
generalising an idea which is supposed to be used for my rotational gravity
puzzles sometime in the future.

I've been thinking of a way to represent solving a Rubik's cube musically. Maybe take an ensemble of 54 musicians. Split them into 6 groups of 9. Maybe have them play a 6-note extended chord with each group playing one of the notes (in unison or octaves) to represent the solved state. Then I'd re-write the notes for each group based off a scrambled cube and then write the piece as I solve it. But then I realized it's just going to sound the same, though the timbre (depending on the instrumentation and whatnot) will change.

Maybe each face will be a different extended chord of 9 notes and I scramble the chords and write that as I solve? Who knows. Maybe this summer when I won't be playing the bass as much I can sit down and sketch some stuff out and experiment with some ideas. Should the chords be the same but in different keys? The same key, but different? Maybe go full polytonal and make them completely different quality chords in completely different keys...
