Radical Ideas in Music and Science


The early part of the 20th century was epitomised by drastic reinvention and new ways of thinking. Albert Einstein’s ‘thought experiments’ led to a completely new model of the space-time continuum – the implications of which are still being understood and proved today.

Almost in parallel, composers such as Claude Debussy, Arnold Schoenberg, Igor Stravinsky and Henry Cowell took music in radically different directions that blew apart the relationship between harmony and progressive, linear time.

Explore both fascinating stories in an evening of live music, experiments and discussion, with Professor Malcolm Longair and music critic Tom Service.
