Supercomputing: Celebrating the CCNI
Jonathan Berger is a leader in the field of sonification and music perception as well as being a composer of instrumental and electronic music. “Data Speaks. Are you listening?” is a lecture that will share Berger’s latest research and discuss the creative potentials for experiencing and analyzing data with our ears rather than our eyes.

Berger has written more than 60 publications that range from collaborations with doctors, scientists, mathematicians, and athletes to extensive work on the perception of timbre and pitch. As a composer he has received three fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and won several major composing prizes in the USA and Europe.

The lecture is Thursday, March 6, beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies Auditorium. Free and open to the public.
