Recording: Music as a Language to Communicate & Engage, Mar 9, 2023

Music is a wonderfully organised and rich language and, since Renaissance, relations between science, sound and melodies have been explored by several composers in different ways. We can think about Bach or Mozart in the XVII and XVIII centuries and their experiments with symmetry and cycles, for example. My talk will explore music as a way to explore and communicate science, connecting art and technology. I will be demonstrating how I worked with NASA, CERN and Yellowstone National Park to turn science data into melodies and sounds.

Music stories from science will be played live on stage by professional flutist Dr Alyssa Schwartz (Fairmont State University)
