Talk Description: 

A fascinating look at numbers in music through the use of golden section proportions, ancient Chinese magic squares, and feng shui in music by James Brown, Phil Collins, Eminem, Peter Maxwell Davies, Claude Debussy and Zack Browning. The lecture will include a discussion of Browning’s “Network Slammer” for flute and computer-generated sounds which is based on the Magic Square of the Sun, and String Quartet which is based on the Lo Shu Square as it appears in period eight of the Flying Star System of feng shui.
