Lecture Series in Music

When: Fri., March 30, 4:30 p.m. 2012

Have you ever noticed heavy metal or jazz moments in classical music, or vice versa? That's no coincidence, and MIT associate professor Michael Cuthbert likely could tell you exactly why. Duke's music department presents Cuthbert's lecture "What Were the Odds?: Re-examining Early (and Not-So-Early) Music With Statistical Models." Cuthbert is known for founding the innovative, high-tech music and history research lab music21, at which programmers develop algorithms to trace musical influences through the centuries, economists evaluate models for artistic patronage and musicologists answer questions such as, "What makes French music French?" The 4:30 p.m. talk in Room 104 of Duke's Biddle Music Building is free. —Chris Vitiello
