MUSIC, WALL STREET, (DEEP) SPACE AND BLACK HOLES
LECTURE PERFORMANCE By Valery Vermeulen
In this lecture performance, Valery Vermeulen takes the audience on a quest: as an artist and scientist, how to develop connections between music and math using new technologies and paradigms? Vermeulen’s starting point is the visionary book “Formalized Music” of I. Xenakis (1968), quantum gravity and Vermeulen’s background as a pure mathematician, theoretical physicist and musician.
Vermeulen presents a voyage in time, space and sound : a journey that leads to the latest evolutions of astrophysics and how they bend and question the boundaries of human scientific and artistic imagination.
The lecture performance also features Vermeulen’s recent work with theoretical physicist Thomas Hertog, former colleague and long time collaborator of Stephen Hawking.
