The Physics of the Blues -Razor Lecture Series
Free Admission
Click for more information ↓
For centuries scientists and engineers have worked within the limitations of the natural world to expand the palette on which musicians can create. This symbiotic relationship is not always widely appreciated, and is symptomatic of much more fundamental connections between science and art that extend into many arenas. Both science and art are driven by intuition and creativity, and both allow genius to express itself in the context of artificial or natural “rules”. Understanding the physical nature of music illuminates the beauty of this creative process. Music, science and engineering are connected at many levels. I will use live keyboard demonstrations to illuminate how the origin of some musical styles, particularly blues piano, can be found in fundamental properties of sound and music. In particular, I will focus on the evolution of the scale and its impact on harmony and melody in western music.Murray Gibson became the Dean of the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering in 2016.  He grew up in the United Kingdom and holds a PhD in Physics from the University of Cambridge. He has a long career in industry and academia and has been Head of the Electronics and Photonics Materials Research Department at Bell Laboratories,  Associate Director of the Argonne National Laboratory, Professor at the University of Illinois in Urbana Champaign, and Founding Dean of the College of Science at Northeastern University. Gibson's  research has focused on the understanding of atomic structure in nanomaterials, and how it influences physical properties.  He has published over 200 papers, holds several patents and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Royal Microscopical Society and the American Physical Society. His hobbies include playing the piano.

His recital appearances have captivated audiences in many distinguished concert halls in his country and abroad. Ney Fialkow has taught piano master classes at music schools and festivals throughout Brazil and internationally; he has also served as jury member for several reputed piano competitions. Under sponsorship by the Brazilian Government, Ney Fialkow holds the Master of Music degree from the New England Conservatory (Boston) under the guidance of Patricia Zander, and the Doctor of Musical Arts degree, with distinction, from the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University, where he studied with Ann Schein.Ney Fialkow explores the repertoire of many styles and historical periods, and has premiered new works for piano in solo, chamber music and concerto genres. Having appeared as soloist with prominent orchestras in Brazil and abroad, he made his debut at the age of 18 with the Porto Alegre Symphony Orchestra, under the late Camargo Guarnieri. A devoted chamber musician, Ney Fialkow has collaborated extensively with a great number of internationally acclaimed musicians such as Carmelo de Los Santos, Viktor Uzur, Marcos Machado, Joel Quarrington, Yang Liu, and Alexander Bailey, among many others. In 2006 he performed Brazilian chamber music with the Porto Alegre Trio and was chosen, along with Cármelo de los Santos and Hugo Pilger, to be among the few select chamber groups to present concerts in Berlin, in the Culture Cup Project sponsored by the Ministry of Culture of Brazil. He made his début in Paris in 2016 at the Salle Cortot of the École Normale de Musique, appearing in a two-piano concert with the acclaimed Georgian pianist Guigla Katsarava.As recording artist, Ney Fialkow released the CD Sonatas Brasileiras (Brazilian Sonatas) in collaboration with the acclaimed violinist Carmelo de los Santos, recorded live, which received the Açoriano Prize for Best Classical CD in 2009, cited as “one of the best chamber music recordings Brazil has ever produced.” In 2010 he was soloist in the premiere of Mahavidyas by Brazilian composer Vagner Cunha, as well as in the CD recording of the integral version of the work.  His album Metamorfora, released in collaboration with double bassist Marcos Machado on the Blue Griffin label, was praised in Strad Magazine for the duo's 'fresh and lively rendition' of Beethoven's Variations on a Theme from Mozart's Magic Flute. A second CD with bassist Marcos Machado, featuring works by Proto, Falla, Devreese, Korngold and Mozart, was released by Blue Griffin in 2018.
