The worlds of music and mathematics will come together for an evening of musical performances and live musical demonstrations influenced by research undertaken by Liverpool mathematicians.
`Points of Convergence: Music Meets Mathematics’ will feature the compositions by the University’s Leverhulme Artist in Residence, Dr Emily Howard, which are musical responses to Professor Lasse Rempe-Gillen’s research in dynamical systems.
Dr Howard’s compositions Leviathan (2015) and Orbits (2015) will be played by experimental duo, scapegoat, comprising saxophonist, Joshua Hyde and percussionist, Noam Bierstone, who have performed in France, Germany, Canada, the US and the UK.
Professor Lasse Rempe-Gillen said: “It has been an absolute pleasure to host Emily as Artist in Residence, with the kind support of the Leverhulme Trust.
“We have had many memorable discussions about mathematics, music, and art and science in general, and I can’t wait to hear the result of her work presented on Tuesday.”
`Points of Convergence: Music Meets Mathematics’ will take place on Tuesday 17th November, from 7 – 9pm in the Chapel, Foresight Centre. For further information and to reserve your free ticket visit this webpage.
Earlier in the day, scientists and artists are invited to a seminar exploring the creative process involved in their own research. Students and staff from all disciplines are invited to join the discussion about how different approaches in science and art really are, and what each might learn from the other.
The event will feature a discussion panel which will include representatives alongside Mathematicians from the fields of Chemistry, Physics, Music, English and the Visual Arts.
`Arts and Sciences Forum – The Creative Process’ will take place between 2- 4pm on Tuesday 17th November in the Seminar Room, Institute of Risk and Uncertainty, Chadwick Building.
