Event time is displayed in your time zone.

Event Description

In this series we explore the intersections between jazz music and science, from how we experience sound and rhythm, to musical memories and the creative process. Join multiple Grammy nominee and Guggenheim and MacArthur fellow Miguel Zenón for an intimate online performance combined with a conversation with scientists from Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute, where Zenón is currently jazz artist-in-residence.

In this month’s program, we explore themes such as how music differs across cultures, and what science can tell us about how listening to a wide variety of music can influence how we learn, appreciate cultural differences and reduce bias.

Event Speakers
