Talk: Metaphor in Mathematics & Sound

Composers have always drawn inspiration from mathematical ideas and 21st century composers make extensive use of mathematical tools in their work. More interesting, though, are the similarities in musical and mathematical thinking. Mathematicians and composers make use of many of the same metaphors as tools for nonverbal reasoning, communication, discovery, and creation.
