In Conversation with Emily Howard: Exploring Mathematics, Music and Literature (featuring Gemma Moss and Ursula Martin)
5.30PM | 3rd May | Theatre B, University Place, The University of Manchester
FREE | ALL WELCOME
Followed by a drinks reception in the First Floor Foyer.
Are you curious about the relations between the arts and the sciences? Mathematics and music have often been compared to one another, but what might that really mean for mathematicians, composers, musicians and their listeners? And what activities could be more different than those of doing mathematics and writing or reading a poem or a novel?
On Thursday 3rd May 2018, join Gemma Moss, Lecturer in English at Birmingham City University, in conversation with Emily Howard, composer and director of PRiSM, the Centre for Practice & Research in Science & Music at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM).
The event will consider the fascinating and diverse relations between music, mathematics and literature, as well as the collaborative and creative responses that have emerged from PRiSM's own cross-disciplinary work.
PRiSM's latest project, 'The Music of Proof', is a collaboration between Emily Howard and the mathematician Marcus du Sautoy, seeking 'to tease out how similar the aesthetic and structural qualities are between mathematical proof and musical composition.'
The event will be accompanied by a live performance of Emily's compositions by the RNCM's Mathias Quartet.
We are also thrilled to announce that we will be joined by special guest Ursula Martin CBE FRSE FREng, Professor of Computer Science at The University of Oxford, to discuss more about the mathematics behind these compositions.
The event will be followed by a drinks reception
