Excerpt

This is exactly what it looks like: We're going to make you sing. ;)

Description

Over the years, many have observed the connection between mathematics and music. In this session, we’ll discuss various OSS tools for music notation and recording, as well as copyright issues, tips on arranging for various ensembles, and online archives of public domain music. But, mostly, we’ll sing, as we did at last year’s OSB Unconference. :)
