Title: Bridging the Gap Between Math and Music

Date: Wednesday, December 8, 2010

Location: Hyde 349

Time: 4:00-5:00PM (Pizza at 3:30PM in the faculty/student lounge)

Speaker: José Luciano and Dr. Larry Blaine (Plymouth State University)

Abstract: “I switched majors from music to math.” “Wow, that’s quite the switch!”  “Actually they’re more closely related than you think.  For example, did you know that Mozart wrote musical pieces based on a game of chance?”  Come see a small sample of how music and math collide when José Luciano and Plymouth State University professor Dr. Larry Blaine talk about how the famous Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart could compose a piece of music simply by rolling a pair of dice.
