Faculty Recital Blends Mathematics and Music
Wednesday, March 3, 2010
The Vista--Music and math came together last week when music professor Christopher Adler performed for the public. The piano recital entitled “014442103231320” was given last Thursday.
The event showcased contemporary piano music built from mathematics, celebrating not only Adler’s works but also works by Tom Johnson and Juan Campoverde Q. The recital took place in the French Parlor of Founders Hall and was comprised of five pieces.
Before the recital was set to begin, the French Parlor was filled with USD students, staff and faculty. This recital was especially exciting for the music department, as it was the first ever live broadcast of a concert.
“I’m here because you’ll never hear this kind of music anywhere else. This is an unique experience to hear at our school,” senior and music major Ryan Lynch said. (Full Story on The Vista)
