Musical Geometry, Games, and Multimedia Art
An ICERM Public Lecture at Brown University: Musical Geometry, Games, and Multimedia Art

Wednesday, October 18, 2017
ICERM, 121 South Main Street, 11th Floor, Providence, RI 02903

Light reception: 5:45pm
Lecture begins: 6:30 pm

MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY ARE INVITED to attend a public lecture that will explore the deep connection between elementary musical concepts (chord, scale, voice leading) and basic concepts of recent geometry (quotient space, orbifold, tangent vector). In his talk Dmitri Tymoczko will review the principles underlying this connection and then demonstrate some recent applications of these ideas, including a large-scale multimedia work for orchestra and live video, in which the images and sounds explore the same geometrical relationships, musical games in which users directly interact with abstract musical geometries, and new musical instruments based on these same ideas.

DMITRI TYMOCZKO studied music and philosophy at Harvard University, and philosophy at Oxford University. He received his PhD in music composition from the University of California, Berkeley. He is currently Professor of Music at Princeton, where he has taught composition and theory since 2002.

This event is free and open to the public.
Limited seating. Please register to reserve a seat.

Hosted by the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in
