Fun idea. I doubt it, but I'll try to find some way of checking the
natural frequencies of the cranium. It would be unlikely if it was a
simple number like phi, but I'm prepared to be surprised.

Otherwise, I think the twelfth root of 2 is involved in music as
the pythagorean comma, but I know too little about it.
