    Bach for Engineers

    It’s long been known that music is good exercise for the brain, and there’s no better workout program than the music of Johann Sebastian Bach! (1685-1750; your mileage may vary)

    At the core of virtually all of Bach’s music – its most distinctive element – is something called counterpoint. This simply means that many different things are happening simultaneously.

    And one about him, by a late colleague:

    Those of us who study Bach know that he is unique, in that you can study his music from almost any parameter you can dream up, and Bach’s music will be perfectly, miraculously organized, original, ingenious and creative within the definitions of that paradigm. It’s as if he thought of everything in all ways simultaneously, all the time.

    Sounds like the definition of a good engineer.
