Math rock and prog rock nerds unite! Nerd Nite agrees that music can best be described as an equation. This month, learn how the variables of acoustics, harmonics and political calculation determine what shows up in your earbuds:
Music Is Math, by Tiffany Criswell
Acoustics play a large role in music, but what do “good acoustics” entail exactly? Physics and anatomy have an enormous amount of influence on how and why we enjoy music. Tiffany will walk you through some scientific and cultural history to explain why some music just sounds so dang good, and why some patterns are inevitable.
Tiffany Criswell is an information scientist, avid baker, crazy plant lady, drummer, film afficionada, wannabe acrobat, and opera school survivor. She would like to be in your band.
Harmonics in Math, Art and Music, by Dr. Fumiko Futamura
Dr. Futamura will teach us how to draw tiles in two point perspective to help us understand harmonic sets in math. We’ll then see how it’s connected to the harmonic sequence (1, 1/2, 1/3, …) and to harmonics in music.
Dr. Fumiko Futamura is a painter, crocheter and associate professor of mathematics at Southwestern University.
The Best of All Possible Worlds: Graz.yna Bacewicz’s Music & the Conflicting Forces in Post-War Poland, 1948-1956, by Sam Spetalnick
After World War II, Poland was torn between worlds — forced to kowtow to the USSR’s leadership, but refusing to let go of its own Catholic identity. The Socialist government brought strict rules about what art and music could be produced, violators were guilty of “crimes against the people.” Grazyna Bacewicz’s music combines the conflicting forces of East and West, offering us a window into Poland’s Cold War art world and giving us some of the century’s best music to boot.
Sam Spetalnick spent four years at UT studying music theory, Eastern European culture, and everywhere they intersect. Now he works at TechShop, where people come to play with power tools.
