On Slate, David Haglund brings to attention this video featuring the Beach Boys' You Still Believe in Me, visualized using math. The song is beautiful and the result nothing short of spectacular. The video was created by Alexander Chen.

“This is a visualization of Beach Boys vocals inspired by the physics of church bells,” Alexander Chen, who works at the Google Creative Lab, explains over at Vimeo. “Using a mathematical relationship between the circumference of a circular surface and pitch, I wrote code that draws a circle for each note of the song.”
