On Friday, June 15ht, renowned mathematician Mike Sterling will present the last in the series of ‘Geometry of Music: Part 4 at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre (BCM&CC).
This fascinating lecture and concert series, which started in 2012, has featured the relationships between nature, music and geometry, including the exciting unveiling of a new unique musical instrument called the Bernoulli – Involute, invented by Sterling.
This final lecture will include the story of the search for connections of music with geometry and a summary of the work completed so far.
Joining Mike are special guests Eli Maor, staff and faculty of the Perimeter Institute of Waterloo, Detroit pianist Harry Carson and Sandy Lindsay.
