Mathematics in Music: Composers of the Golden Ratio
Add this event to your Google Calendar.
The golden ratio is present everywhere in the natural world surrounding us and in the art created by humanity, establishing an amazing balance between symmetry and asymmetry. Pythagoras and his followers believed that what they had identified in the golden ratio was the basic law of existence: from the shells of snails to certain parts of the human body, this ratio is reflected in countless places. The divine number, as the Greeks called it, however, would also later go on to become one of the important organising principles of music history.
Before the performance, between 9.45 and 10.30, we will be running a free (and playful) interactive session for children entitled Tune-up. We look forward to welcoming both school groups and individual school-age youngsters attending the subsequent performance. Please register via firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on the Wednesday before the performance, specifying the number of participating children and their ages. The activity is recommended for children aged 6 and over, and will take place with a minimum of six children.
