In Tune With Mathematics
With Kevin Houston (University of Leeds) and Rob Sturman (University of Leeds)
What does it mean to be musically ‘in tune’? The story takes us from Pythagoras to the modern day. We’ll see why the standard Western tuning of instruments is in fact out of tune and we’ll see how mathematics revolutionized the music industry via software that helps singers sing in tune. Along the way we hope to solve the puzzle of the Beatles’ Magical Mystery Chord.
Suitable for Year 10 and up.
No tickets required.
Refreshments from 17:00
