International Symposium in Dresden – 19th October 2019
…where Science meets Music
Dresden hosts one of the most famous opera house in Germany: the Semperoper, and its artistic spirit can be felt all around the city. From the Society of Spanish Scientists in Germany, we have taken advantage of this artistic environment to organize an international symposium to bring together Music and Science and discuss the meeting points of these two worlds. Already in school, we are often taught that Science and Art belong to two different immiscible cultures. With this symposium, we want to show that they not only share many elements but can actually complement each other and bring new incredible outcomes, with a special focus on Music.
A panel of renowned experts will show us the many relations that Science and Music have, organized in 4 different blocks:
- Music and Mind
- Music and Social Science
- Music and Medicine
- Music and Science Communication
Every block will include talks from experts in the field and we will learn and discuss with them their research. Music and the plasticity of the brain, woman sponsorship in music along history or why do we like some kinds of music and dislike others are just some of the topics our speakers will talk about.
– Goals –
- Promote social and “non-classical” research
- Communicate science and bring it closer to the public
- Promote networking, mobility and collaborations among scientists
