SoundWaves presents “Getting the Job Done: Humans & the Tools We Use”. Curated by Daniel Grabois, UW professor of horn.
SoundWaves combines scientific lectures about the world with live classical music performances. Each event revolves around a theme, exploring it first from many scientific angles and then through the lens of music. The program concludes with a live performance of music related to the evening’s theme.
The science lectures are delivered using language that the curious layman can understand, with a minimum of jargon and formulas. The music lectures, while demanding careful listening, are likewise designed for the layman and not the specialist.
The May 10th theme will be “Getting the Job Done: Humans and the Tools We Use,” with electro-acoustic music by “Sinister Resonance,” a quartet featuring Mark Hetzler on trombone and electronics, Vincent Fuh on piano, Nick Moran on doublebass and Todd Hammes on drums/percussion.
