The Red String
A talk from EMF 2016 by Dragica Kahlina
On Friday August 5, 2016 at – in Stage C
A fun romp between my failed PhD in theoretical physics on the topic of string theory, my life long commitment to yarn art and how this inspires my music and my love for the Karplus-Strong algorithm that is used to simulate string instruments. It ends with a insight in how our tonal system is tied to to the vibrating string and how to cut loose when the string is no longer a guide, but a gordic knot that ties us down. May contain traces live crochet or other yarn art and "live" coding of music.
