Mathemusical Conversations: Mathematics And Computation In Music Performance And Composition, Hardback Book

Mathemusical Conversations: Mathematics And Computation In Music Performance And Composition Hardback

Edited by Elaine Chew, Gerard Assayag, Jordan B. L. Smith

Part of the Lecture Notes Series, Institute for Mathematical Sciences, National University of Singapore series


Mathemusical Conversations celebrates the understanding of music through mathematics, and the appreciation of mathematics through music.

This volume is a compilation of the invited talks given at the Mathemusical Conversations workshop that took place in Singapore from 13-15 February 2015, organized by Elaine Chew in partnership with Gerard Assayag for the scientific program and with Bernard Lanskey for the artistic program.

The contributors are world experts and leading scholars, writing on the intersection of music and mathematics.

They also focus on performance and composition, two topics which are foundational both to the understanding of human creativity and to the creation of tomorrow's music technologies.

This book is essential reading for researchers in both music and mathematics.

It will also appeal more broadly to scholars, students, musicians, and anyone interested in new perspectives on the intimate relationship between these two universal human activities.
