Physicist Stephon Alexander explores the interconnection between music and the evolution of astrophysics and the laws of motion. He reveals new ways music, in particular jazz music, mirrors modern physics, such as quantum mechanics, general relatively, and the physics of the early universe. He also discusses ways that innovations in physics have been and can be inspired from “improvisational logic” exemplified in jazz performance and practice.

7:00 p.m. – Conversation on Jazz and Quantum Improvisation
