Music and Science 

I'm a music geek. I love almost all kinds, and what I don't like is frankly of little merit. Atonal music, however, took me a long time to come to appreciate, and mostly I consider it a sort of intellectual masturbation. A paper published recently looks at statistical frequencies of notes in various pieces of music, and compares them to linguistic frequencies. Pretty cool stuff, and may explain why most people don't get the atonal stuff.
