STEPHON ALEXANDER / THE JAZZ OF PHYSICS
As both a jazz saxophonist and a theoretical physicist,
Stephon Alexander struggled to reconcile his passion
for music and physics with the ancient realm where music,
physics, and the cosmos were one.
Playing the saxophone and improvising with equations,
Stephon uncovered the connection between
the fundamental waves that make up sound
and the fundamental waves
that make up everything else.
In his book THE JAZZ OF PHYSICS: The Secret Link
Between Music and the Structure of the Universe,
Stephon reveals the ancient poetic idea
of the “music of the spheres,” taken seriously,
clarifies confounding issues in physics.
The book has already received praise from music
pioneer Brian Eno, who said it “could just as well
be called The Joy of Physics because what leaps out
from it is Stephon Alexander’s delight and curiosity
about the cosmos ...”.
Join Julie Ann and Stephon to explore the amazing -
and actual - resonance between science and music.
