The dodecahedron has 12 faces...one for each note in the chromatic scale. Has the shape ever been used to create music. For example rolling it as a dice? Or even something more structural like using its symmetry somehow to generate lines of music?
My new book is written as 12 chapters, one chapter for each month of the year. I used a spinning dodecahedron at the top of each chapter to keep track of the chapter number.
