Beauty & Logic | Cymatics

Saturday, August 24, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Explore cymatics, the investigation of how sound makes materials vibrate and the patterns that emerge from this vibration.

Beauty and Logic is a unique math-meets-music experience exploring the sounds we love and the equations that make them possible. These educational concerts, fusing bold musical performances with brief dives into the math behind the sounds and vibrations, are hosted by Grace Farms Music Director, saxophonist, and trained mathematician, Marcus G. Miller, who performs with this band, IMW.

About Marcus G. Miller

Marcus Miller began studying saxophone at age nine and developed a passion that put him on stage at 13. With gifts extending beyond music, he graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Mathematics. After a short stint at a major hedge fund he moved to New York City to pursue music. He soon developed a reputation as a versatile and virtuosic player, while studying music production and engineering under Grammy-Winning Engineer “Bassy” Bob Brockman (Notorious B.I.G, Herbie Hancock, D’Angelo).

Marcus has performed at the Obama White House, Madison Square Garden, The World Economic Forum at Davos, The Montreux Jazz Festival, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert alongside Jon Batiste, and Carnegie Hall. In addition, he has worked with jazz giants ELEW and Jazzmeia Horn, as well as major artists like The Fugees and Madonna.

Marcus maintains his interest in mathematics and physics by giving talks and performances that combine Math and Music. He has been featured at TEDSummit 2019, TEDxOttawa 2019, Brown University, University of Georgia, and University of Michigan. He hopes to encourage people to become more aware of the potential for mathematics and music to serve as routes to personal, spiritual, and community development.
