Catalyst Conversations Music and Math: Dennis Miller and Hubert Ho

December 8, 2016, 7:00PM - 8:00PM

20 Ames St., Cambridge, MA 02139

What is the nature of knowledge? Where does music lead the mind? Dennis Miller and Hubert Ho think about these big questions through the particular lens of music.

Both Miller and Ho address the relationship between mathematics and music, looking at their art form through the lens of another discipline. Incorporating mathematical insights, however, does not preclude the necessity, possibility, or desirability of a spiritual or emotional connection to music. Does mathematics have a role in what they experience internally as composers, and in listeners’ experiences of resulting musical compositions?

This program is organized in conjunction with the Suffolk University Gallery current exhibit, Mathematics and Art: Searching For Pattern, co-curated by Deborah Davidson and George Fifield.

Catalyst Conversations, launched in October 2012, presents artists whose work resonates with science and technology. We are interested in connecting art and science through programs involving artists presenting to the science and technology community, as well as public events – which demonstrate the conversation between, and the ways that art and science + technology connect.
