'RhythMatics' with Stephon Alexander and Will Calhoun at National Museum of Mathematics

Event description:

What does a hip-hop or rock and roll rhythm have to do with geometry, space and time, and numbers? In this highly interactive event, mathematical physicist and musician Stephon Alexander and multi-Grammy Award-winner and drummer for band Living Colour Will Calhoun will take you on a journey into the connections between mathematics and rhythm. First, Professor Alexander will give a user-friendly and interactive presentation of the mathematics of beat-making. Then, Calhoun will demonstrate these ideas on his wave electronic drum. Armed with these newfound tools, the audience will collaborate with Alexander and Calhoun to create an original hip-hop beat using new ideas that relate mathematics to rhythm ? RhythMatics!
