The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE) teams up with the Institute of Physics and the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford to explore Bach’s cosmic music in their stimulating Sunday-morning service combining a scientific talk and a performance of a Bach cantata. Professor Alain Goriely kicks off this series on Sunday 13 October at Kings Place by taking a look at Mathematics and the Brain.
The first two seasons of Bach, the Universe and Everything explored the deepest, darkest depths of space and the tiniest dimensions of the atom. This time, the OAE is focusing on something a bit closer to home; they’re exploring you. It’s a collision of maths, physics, philosophy and biology, delving into questions of existentialism and being. The Orchestra is joined by leading experts in the field, such as Professors Marcus du Sautoy and Susan Stepney , who will use their most recent research to examine exciting topics like artificial intelligence and the brain.
The OAE’s endeavouring series continues to question why things are the way they are every month on a Sunday until 5 April 2020.
