For the love of Music! (And all the Physics behind it...)

The Institute of Physics and the University of Wolverhampton are pleased to host Dr. Elena del Valle, from the University of Wolverhampton, for an Evening Lecture addressed to the general public.

The talk will start at 19:30 with refreshments served from 19:00. It is free and open to all audiences (no age restriction).

We kindly request registration via event-brite to help us provide enough catering.

Music resonates with the deepest roots of our human nature. It has the power to change our moods, bring us peace in those hard moments and help us connect with others and their creativity. Understanding what defines music is to explain how the sounds that we hear must be structured in order to feel "good" and what it is that makes us as people able to enjoy them. This involves mathematical patterns, their realization through various physical media and their eventual combination in a way that brings meaning or sense. As such, this is a question ideally put to a physicist, whose explorations can add a new dimension to the appreciation of music for everybody with an interest in either science and/or art. In this Christmas talk, Dr. del Valle will unravel the physics and maths that explain what makes music, in a festive presentation that will be using several instruments and some talents from the audience!
