The connection between music, mathematics and the mind is ancient and reaches back to the very roots of human culture. Our history has witnessed the exploration of a large variety of musical forms and structures. In this course, we will delve into core concepts of music theory, mathematics and cognition as well as broader questions about aesthetics, creativity, and philosophy, as well as the interplay of art, discovery and formal systems. Musical theory and practice need to be linked in order to ground each other. Therefore this class combines theoretical and practical parts. On the theoretical side, core concepts from fundamental and advanced music theory will be taught and contextualized in overarching debates. On the practical side, students will learn and try different musical techniques and apply their theoretical knowledge in practical individual or group exercises. Every year a different aspect will be at the main focus. This will be announced at the lab’s website ahead of the class: A practical musical background is recommended for this class (if you are unsure, ask before the class).
