Physics of music

Kulturbunker in Cologne, December 9th, 2017, at 3 p.m.

What has physics to do with music! Well, quite a lot! Is it possible to see sound waves? Do animals hear in another way than we do? Or do we live in different sound spheres? What is sound, what is tone? And how would it be, if there where no breaks into the music?

All of this is investigated by the team of “Physics of music”. With the duo Doyna, consisting of the clarinetist Annette Maye and the guitarist Martin Schulte.  The show will be moderated by Tuba Tunçak and the scientific author and entertainer Jo Hecker.

Just come with your whole family and experiment together with us! Adults and children are welcome to our musical scientific show.
