Tequila Music Math

I discovered what happens
when you feed me tequila
and I play.

Odd mathematical formulae leak from my fingers,
onto the strings,
and soak the air around me
in quadratic sound.

A system of  linear equations
solved never for the optimum
but only for its own sense
of internal consistency.

(Yes – I know linear equations are not quadratic.
But this is music, after all, and… tequila.)

Subtle calculations of high precision,
lost in the conversion from binary
to music.

Each motion of the fingers
is a  function of all prior motions;
a differential calculation
as time approaches zero
and sound approaches infinity.
