When is a Structure a Musical Instrument?

Date: Thursday, 31 January 2019 19:00 - 21:00

Venue: Anglia Ruskin University (Mab 221)  |  City: Chelmsford, United Kingdom

Speaker: Prof Jim Woodhouse (Emeritus Professor of Structural Dynamics, Cambridge University Engineering Department)

Adventures in tuned percussion...

Many things make a noise when you hit them, but not many are commonly used to play music – why is that? This talk will explore the science underlying tuned percussion instruments, and the ingenious ways in which different cultures have created them, ranging from church bells through Indian drums to Caribbean steel pans.

Refreshments will be available before the talk from 18:30.

Please note that the curry is now on 7 February.
