World premiere of a new work for string quartet: a poetic translation of mathematical ideas into sound.
Composer Emily Howard’s music is known for its particular connection with science and she has a background in mathematics and computer science. Regular conversations with mathematicians and scientists enhance her creative work and over the last year Emily has been exchanging ideas with mathematician Marcus du Sautoy, the Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science, and Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford.
