When Pythagoras discovered the proportions of musical harmony, the story goes that he heard five blacksmiths’ hammers at work in the forge. Four of them sounded harmonious together but the fifth did not quite fit. The Fifth Hammer is a symbol of the unknown, of the ineffable. The Fifth Hammer is a sonic reminder that only a willingness to explore the unknown leads to discovery, and that encounters with the indescribable open our minds to to new worlds of ideas.
