The Physics of Jazz: Presentation by Stephon Alexander

Tuesday, March 26, 2013 from 11:00 am - Noon
Howard Hall, Reynolds Recital Hall

The Physics of Jazz:  Presentation by Stephon Alexander is part of the President's Fine Art Series.

MSU Office of the President and the College of Arts & Architecture present a series of artistic and cultural events focused on the intersection of art and science.  All events are free and open to the public.

Joining us from Dartmouth College, Stephon Alexander is known for asking the big questions.  This will blend his expertise in cosmology, particle physics and quantum gravity with his interest in ...jazz.  As he once told National Geographic, "Exploring a physics problem is like jazz improvisation--understanding the basic rules and themes lets you take off in spontaneous new directions. Music allows me to understand physics on a simpler, yet deeper level."  We hope after this experience you will feel the same.

This public talk is part of the President's Fine Arts Series and part of the Celebrating Einstein event

The cost of this event is: Free
