Yes, math and music are both just other languages. Music, math, and 
language all have musical, mathematical, and linguistic aspects. If music 
were just an audible math though, then people should enjoy watching 
oscilloscope renditions of songs with no sound as much as they do listening 
to them. Since is it so clear that is not the case, we should consider that 
it might be the perceptual modality, not the sequences and logical 
relations which are of prime significance.
