Music of the Spheres

Pythagoras or his followers believed that we should be able to calculate the orbits of the heavenly bodies (which the Greeks pictured as carried round the earth on crystal spheres) by relating them to the musical intervals. They felt that all the regularities in nature are musical; the movements of the heavens were, for them, the music of the spheres. —Jacob Bronowski, The Ascent of Man

Music of the Spheres is a mathematical fantasy about the circular inhabitants of the planet Corona struggling with avarice, apathy, and allegiance while questioning the shape of their world. Readers are assumed to have a knowledge of pre-calc math.
