Week 16 – Challenge 5 – Blueprint

Challenge page : http://www.ancientsocieties.com/blueprint/

The Challenge text says Chaser, that will be helpful later.

We have a picture with some formulas in the center :
blueprint

If we calculate every lines of the different math formulas :

  • 3111.27 / 5
  • 127.313+323.992
  • (108.561X5)-127
  • 2X(121+95.0635X2)
  • 20.3790333431^2
  • (412.35X.213+(7843/6)X.445)-254.214716667
  • 24.945019543^2
  • (2X6X45)-124.695
  • 131.851X5
  • (2365.654+4997.15+541.644)-7489.143

We obtain a sequence of numbers :
622.254
451.305
416.305
622.254
415.305
415.305
622.254
415.305
659.255
415.305

These numbers are familiar to music composers, that’s music notes frequencies (http://www.intmath.com/trigonometric-graphs/music.php)

We have now a new sequence with some approximations :

D#5
A#4
G#4
D#5
G#4
G#4
D#5
G#4
E5
G#4

Played on an online sequencer : http://onlinesequencer.net/ or any other music tool, we get something like

Ho wait, I know that music… Probably some errors in the score but that’s clear enough ! Listen…

This is the main music theme of 1978’s Halloween movie, composed by John Carpenter (who is also the Director).
