The Construction of Beauty: Music and Math

When: Wed., April 19, 7 p.m. 2017

This workshop, led by EMPAC director Johannes Goebel, will center on the question of whether music and mathematics are bonded in an intrinsic relationship, or if instead culturally driven concepts establish their marriage (nature vs. nurture). This evening will include music generated by computer, presentations of custom-built xylophones and metallophones, and works by JS Bach played on pianos with different tuning systems.
