I enjoyed your article. One thing I don't understand is why of sound travels as waves, two notes played together form chords instead of averaging to give the sound of the frequency in between. For example why doesn't playing A# and C of the same octave sound the same as B. Compare this to light, where combining 2 colors gives the color of light in between (yellow and blue make green).
