These are The Ancient Melodies. They are arranged using mathematical constants in base 12, played in the 12 musical tones.
A series of random notes from the chromatic scale typically sounds strange, meandering, and it's difficult to arrange into a flowing melody that follows conventional harmonic aesthetics.
What is astonishing is that with minimal intervention, these mathematical digit sequences sound like they came from the mind of a composer, and are brimming with lively humor, haunting beauty, and breathtaking emotion.

You can hear for yourself that I used conventional chord progressions to arrange these digit sequences into the kind of music humans have been writing for decades, even centuries. Since these constants are hiding in plain sight, and required little intervention to reveal the underlying musical structure, it's highly likely that these songs have been playing throughout the Universe for millions, if not billions of years, discovered and written by intelligent life everywhere.
The constants, when translated into a series of notes, contain implied melodic phrases. The simplest example would be to ask you to put spaces in this series of letters.
The raw notes of pi and e in base 12 contain this kind of reason in the musical sense. There are many songs one could derive from the constants, but these songs are "implied" in the raw note sequences. These arrangements "optimize the inherent cleverness" within the digits.

Here is a version of the first section of pi, played in a minor key.
This is an alternative arrangement to Euler's number. It's METAL!

Here is a version of the pi song without numbers or explanation. This is the most direct way to present the art. Also, the final note is tuned to the tone of the Hydrogen.
The EM frequency of Hydrogen is 1420.405751 MegaHertz, cut that in half (reduce by octaves) 22 times, and you end up at 338.651 Hz, in the audible range.
The most important element to understand is what base 12 means. We use base ten, or decimal. Our standard system uses 10 characters to do math.
These are just symbols to represent amounts. Think of Roman numeral "X". In our system, we need two digits to express that amount, 10. Roman numeral "X" represents that amount using a single character. Digits are merely symbols to represent amounts. Choosing which base you use is like selecting your language. The whole world just happens to speak base 10.
Base 12 means that we are using 12 characters.
A = ten
B = eleven
Then, to connect the math with the music, we line those digits up with the 12 musical tones.
From there, we can play base 12 digit sequences. It didn't take much to reveal the underlying melodic phrases. As you can see, many of the phrases contain long strings of straight quarter notes, which is the simplest possible way to play a sequence.
