The WAAC Band agrees with Vitruvius: “The architect should be equipped with knowledge of many branches of study and varied kinds of learning. Music also the architect ought to understand so that he may have the knowledge of the canonical and mathematical theory, and besides be able to tune ballistae, catapultae, and scorpiones to the proper key.” We are a band of faculty and students who tune canonical and mathematical ballistae.
