Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Correspondence between intonation and expression in music
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Trevor Stephenson, Madison Bach Musicians
Abstract: For demonstration in the lecture I will bring my 17th-century Italian harpsichord and tuning lever (this harpsichord weighs only 40 pounds and has a lovely, clear sound). I will explain and demonstrate how various temperament systems are created (with a wee-bit of the math behind them) and show how different temperaments affect the expressive possibilities of a piece.
