What does jazz have to do with mathematics? More than one might think, says Vijay Iyer: âMusic contains a lot of abstract thought and concepts like rhythm, chords and structures. It deals with numbers and quantities, which is what mathematics does. There was a time when mathematics was associated with traditions that did not differentiate between spirit and intellect, and that is exactly what music is for me. For me itâs all about letting rational structures become intuitive.â The American pianist with Indian roots knows what he is talking about: before becoming a musician he studied mathematics and physics at Yale and UC Berkeley. Only after saxophonist Steve Coleman offered him the position of pianist in his band in the mid 1990s, did Iyer decide to devote himself completely to music.
