It’s a Matter of Time

White Light Conversation

  • Saturday, November 9 at 4:30


Join us for this free, 90-minute weekend discussion with leading artists and scientists as we explore the concept of time and its relationship with music. This conversation will be moderated by John Schaefer, host of WNYC’s Soundcheck and New Sounds, and will include a live performance of Steve Reich’s Clapping Music.

What does science teach us about the dimension of time? How do we, as individuals and audience members, experience time? How do artists illustrate time in their work? For this multidisciplinary panel, consider time as interpreted by Buddhist psychotherapist Sylvia Boorstein, cognitive neuroscientist Daniel Casasanto, composer Georg Friedrich Haas, author and physicist Alan Lightman, and film director Peter Mettler.
