HLF Review 2016

Outreach Outreach

Outreach Outreach Activities The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) uses the Forum to cultivate the knowledge of young researchers through dialogue and exchange with the world’s most venerated scientists. In addition, through a comprehensive program of accompanying events, the HLFF strives to elevate the public’s interest and perception of mathematics and computer science.

Outreach Heidelberger Frühling The Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF) is pleased to have a new cooperation partner in Heidelberger Frühling (Heidelberg Spring). Since 1997, the international music festival Heidelberger Frühling has taken place in Heidelberg every spring and enjoyed over 100 events and 44,000 visitors in 2016. In cooperation with the HLFF, there was a panel discussion under the motto of “Music and Mathematics.” During this discussion, part of the Chamber Music Academy’s Fokus Bach, the bio-informatic scientist Alexandros Stamatakis of the Heidelberg Institute forTheoretical Studies (HITS), and Heidelberg musicologist Dorothea Redepenning debated the question of to what extent, or at least if, music is influenced by mathematics. The session was moderated by Christoph Vratz, a music journalist from Cologne. The origins of the consonant intervals octave, quint and quart was traced back to simple numeric relations, and Johann Sebastian Bach was known for implementing his music with numeric symbols. The parameters generate issues such as tonal colors, which can (largely) be withdrawn from a scientific viewpoint and thus measurability. What was particularly interesting was the question into the extent to which music can be influenced by computers and mathematical models. Is there an ideal musical score based on mathematical calculations? 101
