Emily Howard and Marcus du Sautoy with performances by RNCM Musicians
PRiSM Launch Event
In association with Manchester Science Festival and Oxford e-Research Centre
RNCM Concert Hall, RNCM
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.
