The Music Of Proof: What Does Maths Sound Like?
With Marcus du Sautoy (mathematician) and Emily Howard (composer)
Wednesday 4 October 7.30pm
RNCM Concert Hall
Is there maths hidden inside music? Is there music hidden in maths? This October, PRiSM, based at the RNCM is exploring the eternal connection and differences between the art of music and the science of maths. Listen to a new collection of miniatures for string quartet: five short movements each associated with a different mathematical idea. Play with a new app that will be launched during the evening inviting the audience to match the maths in musical fragments. Join composer Emily Howard and mathematician Marcus du Sautoy in a discussion about how maths and music are intertwined.
This is the launch event for PRiSM, the RNCM Centre for Practice & Research in Science & Music, with a series of events exploring collaborations between Music and Mathematics led by composer Emily Howard (Director, PRiSM) and mathematician Marcus du Sautoy (co-Director, PRiSM).
