The Music of Physics from spiders to snowflakes: creating and interacting with virtual instruments

A public lecture, Friday 29 January, 2021 at 18:00 hrs UTC

From black holes to quantum mechanics, there are few aspects of physics that cannot be meaningfully explored through the lens of music. As Albert Einstein famously declared: “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”
