The Hidden Mathematics in Music
Art Lewis, Professor of Music (retired)
Illinois State University
Composers of music have found inspiration in a variety of sources, both external and subjective. These have included love, death, myth, architecture, nature. Interestingly, many composers have also drawn upon mathematical sources.
The "Hidden Mathematics in Music" offers an intriguing exploration of various principles used by composers. These have been used in thrilling, moving, transcendental, and even amusing compositions from the 1300's to the present.
Art Lewis was principal violist in the Nashville, Baltimore, and Santa Fe Opera orchestras and violist in the Chamber Symphony of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, and Concerts Colonne (Paris) orchestras. He retired as professor from Illinois State University in music and the humanities. Here in Atlanta he taught music and was as well an artist affiliate at Emory. His Doctor of Music degree is from Indiana University, and he was recipient of a Fulbright Grant in Paris and a National Endowment for the Humanities fellowship at Harvard.
Parking and Such
Java Vino is located diagonally across the street from Manuel's Tavern. There is parking behind the building and on Williams Mill Road across the street. Manuel's reserves the use of their lots at all times, but parking there hasn't presented a problem for our guests so far.
Enter the cafe on the street level and let them know that your order will count toward our minimum order requirement.
