Event Description:

A Music/Mathematics performance/presentation for Lehman College Students

Find out how ideas from Jazz and Mathematics can help guide your learning and career paths from Saxophonist/Mathematician Marcus Miller in musical/mathematical performance/conversation with Pianist/Professor of Mathematics Rob Schneiderman.

Refreshments will be provided — All are Welcome!

Presented by the Department of Mathematics, and the Department of Music, Multimedia, Theatre, and Dance, with support from the Simons Foundation.

Marcus Miller graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Mathematics. After a stint working for a hedge fund, he has since been traveling the world playing music, both leading his own groups as well as performing with Jazz artists such as Grammy-nominated vocalist Jazzmeia Horn and Late Show musical director pianist Jon Batiste. Marcus has performed at The Obama White House, and has studied music production and engineering under Grammy-winning sound engineer “Bassy” Bob Brockman (Notorious B.I.G, Herbie Hancock, D’Angelo).

Marcus has spoken at the New Jersey Association of Music Educators, and was noted as an Artist of Distinction by the State of New Jersey.

He is the creator of the Math+Music Project, and is currently the host/creator of the Quadrivium series at New York’s Museum of Mathematics, while he continues to study mathematics and education.

Rob Schneiderman joined the Lehman College faculty in 2006 after a busy career as a musician, including performances and recordings with jazz luminaries such has Eddie Harris, James Moody, Charles McPherson, JJ Johnson, Jimmy Heath, Clifford Jordan, Art Farmer and Harold Land, as well as 10 recordings as a leader for the Reservoir Music label and a more recent "Tone Twister" release on the Hollistic MusicWorks label.

In 2001 Rob received a PhD in Mathematics from UC Berkeley under the guidance of topology guru Robion Kirby, and before his current professorship in Lehman's Department of Mathematics, Rob had postdoc positions at the Max-Planck-Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, NYU’s Courant Institute and UPenn. His research is focussed on studying surfaces in 4-dimensional spaces and links of circles in 3-dimensional spaces. Rob’s musicomathematical essay “Can One Hear the Sound of a Theorem?” was published in the Notices of the American Mathematical Society and in the collection “Best Writing on Mathematics 2012” Princeton University Press.
