Bernard Lanskey, presenter
Stephen Emmerson, presenter


Building out from their work on Bach's Goldberg Variations in Mathemusical Conversations 2015, duo researching artists Stephen Emmerson and Bernard Lanskey continue to explore the simplest prime numbers as a tool for encouraging active audience listening. In this forum, they explore how the juxtaposition of the numbers 3 and 2 applies to multiple parameters of musical organisation. In doing so, they draw listeners away from focusing on 'repertoire' and towards a multi-dimensional appreciation of 'compositional material'. Using three keyboards and visual projections, this audio-visual collage provides performative insights into the music of nine iconic composers from Bach to Bartok.
