A unique program that illuminates and explores the intersections of music and mathematics, filmed before a live audience.
For centuries, musicians have used the mathematical relationships among scales and harmonies to pluck our emotions. Composers lull us with patterns and then surprise us with asymmetries. Even the planets play unheard songs in revolutions and orbits.
The Santa Fe Symphony and the Santa Fe Institute collaborated to produce “The Majesty of Music & Mathematics: Voyages of Discovery IV,” a unique program that illuminates and explores the intersections of music and mathematics. Filmed before a live audience at The Lensic in June 2017, this special 2nd screening is to celebrate the completion of this program to be aired on PBS. Come check out clips and faces from our beloved Santa Fe as they rise to the “big screen.”
Admission is FREE. No tickets are required. All ages are welcome.
