Mathematics Colloquium

Science B
"Subdividing: Secrets of Musical Rhythm and Tonality" presented by Craig Kurumada, ASC, Mathematics and Computer Science, HSU and musician.

Our own culture plays a great role in conditioning our perception of normalcy in music and rhythm. In this talk, Kurumada will introduce new ways of viewing rhythm and tonality. Through a demonstration of Asian and Balkan music and dance, Kurumada will provide the audience with tools to
expand their appreciation of the ways humans make music. No background in music theory or dance ability is necessary.

Craig Kurumada earned his BA in Linguistics from the University of Utah. He has studied and performed Balkan music for 25 years and is a member of the international folk band, Chubritza.

The HSU Dept. of Theatre, Film & Dance presents a new adaptation of the magical love story from India, Shakuntala, a family-friendly holiday show in Gist Hall Theatre on the HSU campus in Arcata for two weekends: November 29-December 1, and December 6-8 at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. on Dec. 2 and Dec. 9. , from the HSU Box Office (826-3928) or at the door.

The adaptation of this Sanskrit classic is by HSU professor and playwright Margaret Thomas Kelso who describes it as a “very sweet fairy tale--with the usual ominous complications-- that everyone can enjoy, including children.”

With a premiere adaptation, original music by HSU Music professor Brian Post, and directed by HSU professor Rae Robison, this is a unique production of a popular favorite in India seldom seen anywhere in the U.S.
