Subject: [PrimeNumbers] Music model for prime numbers

In this music model, the prime integers fall on the silences.

2 is the first positive prime integer.

Imagine, starting with 2, making a drumbeat, every second time.

No sound is heard at 3.

3 is the second positive prime integer.

Starting at 3, make a drumbeat, every third time.

At 4 we hear the drumbeat started at 2.

No sound is heard at 5.

5 is the third positive prime integer.

Starting at 5, make a drumbeat every 5th time.

At 6, we hear the two drumbeats, one started at 2, and one started at 3.

No sound is heard at 7.

7 is the fourth positive prime integer.

Starting at 7, make a drumbeat every 7th time.
