The Webinar on Music and Math took place on Thursday, December 17th, 2020 from 2 pm until 3 pm, with Dr. Paco Gomez, Professor of Mathematics at the Polytechnic University of Madrid in Spain, as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.
The invited speaker explained how we can see division as forming groups and what is the greatest common divisor of two numbers and how we can calculate it. Dr. Paco Gomez then described the musical concepts of temporary stretch, pulse and rhythm and defined what he called mathrhythm. The speaker also pointed out that we can analyze music by using mathematics because math studies structures and patterns and music is full of structures and patterns.
