Pythagoras' Lambdoma Matrix: the basis for the Lambdoma THe Lambdoma Keyboard

The Lambdoma Matrix is attributed to the philosopher Pythagoras (500 bc) who spent over twenty years as an Egyptian initiate. The concept of the Lambdoma Matrix in the present age is relatively unknown, and is not cited in most dictionaries. On the surface, it appears to be nothing more than a mathematical multiplication and division table.

On a closer look however, it bears a one-to-one relationship to musical intervals in a very specific harmonic series. Because of its numerical framework of ratios, it can be translated into frequencies of audible sound. The Lambdoma bears relationships to aromatics, chemistry, crystallography, cybernetics, art, music, geometry, all of which may be explored by those interested in the above disciplines. The Lambdoma bears mathematical relationships to Issac Newton, the Diophantine equations and the Farey series, as well as in the present century to Georg Cantor.

They developed a Harmonic keyboard, researched the frequencies of foods, organs, chakras, elements, and did many investigations such as:

Keyboard

The Hindu cosmological number 18,446,744,073,709,551,615 when translated into a musical frequency (by taking 10 to the 19th power) results in a frequency of 555.1115123 Hz, a C# in Western notation. This frequency is interesting because it describes the rotation of the earth around the sun, as well as the average clustering of the four DNA strands when coded to a musical language.

After taking 10 to the 19th power through 10 to the 30th power, we found an interesting pattern of that same number 5551115123 with decimals in different placements leading to different musical notations for each. Note that 2 to the 64th power leads to the same Hindu number above and is 256 Hz, a bit below middle C on the piano.

Keyboard

Inspired by Pythagoras' holistic system of music based on the Lambdoma matrix, the Lambdoma Harmonic Keyboard was conceived by Barbara in the 1990's. Barbara created a prototype of the keyboard with the help of mechanical engineer Robert Foulkrod and electronic designer Dick Lord. Three successive generations of the electronic keyboard were introduced over that decade that included updates of the circuit board, a MIDI output port, and ports for volume and sustain pedals. The third generation 4-quadrant keyboard, shown in the figure above, has 256 keys laid out over the surface of a 32" by 16" by 2'' metal case.

The Lambdoma Keyboard was sold with two celluloid overlays and a user&pos;s manual. The keyboard required a personal computer running special software (Tune Smithy) to function.

Hundreds of these keyboards were manufactured in the 2000's and many are still in circulation. The keyboards are no longer in production; however, occasionally second-hand keyboards are for sale on BBAY. At the tie of this update, the PC software is still available at Tune Smithy. The Tune Smithy software also has a full software emulation of the keyboard that does not require Barbara's physical device.

Details on the history of the Lambdoma Harmonic Keyboard, along with documentation and technical manuals are on this KEYBOARD page. For a brief introduction to the keyboard written by Dan Shaw go to A brief introduction to the Lambdoma Keyboard.
