Beautiful Music – an amazing mathematical fluke?


Beautiful Music – an amazing mathematical fluke? A performance by Malcolm Savage

Abstract

In this talk, Malcolm will attempt the (almost) impossible – to define beautiful music. The underlying mathematics is fascinating, yet beguilingly simple, and leads to a very surprising new conclusion about the existence of music itself. The talk will be illustrated by examples of recorded music, from the Beatles to Beethoven, and live instruments.

No charge is made to attend meeting; non-IMA members are welcome.

The talk is coordinated by East Midlands Branch Secretary, Dr Stephen Hibberd, School of Mathematical Sciences, University of Nottingham.
