Along these lines I just came across a very interesting article from
"Notices of the American Match Society" which has an intersting issue on
the Art of Mathematics:
Music: Broken Symmetry, Geometry, and Complexity
by Gary W. Don, Karyn K. Muir, Gordon B. Volk, James S. Walker
Notices of the American Match Society, Jan 2010, Vol 57, Num.1 , pp. 30-49.
