The Jazz of Physics: Stephon Alexander public lecture webcast
Take a musical journey of the mind and the cosmos on April 14 when scientist Stephon Alexander presents a live talk at Perimeter Institute called The Jazz of Physics.
Alexander, a professor of physics at Brown University, began his journey to science in high school where he encountered a teacher who believed in his potential and introduced him to the magic of jazz, fostering a connection between John Coltrane and Albert Einstein.
He’ll demonstrate how the search for answers to deep cosmological puzzles has parallels to jazz improvisation. He will also explore new ways that music, particularly jazz, mirrors concepts in modern physics such as quantum mechanics, general relativity, and the early universe.
Watch the webcast live here at 7 pm ET on April 14, and subscribe to Perimeter’s YouTube channel for more talks like this.
