THE MATHEMATICS OF MUSIC
Is it possible to explain harmony with mathematics? Are geometric shapes found in music? Can it be said that music, like mathematics, could serve as a scientific tool? During the concert The Mathematics of Music we will discuss these issues and equip young people with resources for further exploration, drawing on works by Strauss, Rameau, Mahler, Bach, Saint-Saëns, Bartók, and also Goulet. Let us discover together how mathematics and music are related, and how they go hand in hand at the OSM!
