So, a particle physicist and a singer-songwriter walk into a club in the West Village… and it’s no joke!

For at its heart, the physical world is a musical world. From the vibrations of a guitar string to the sunlight that sweeps away the dark, and even as far as the notorious Higgs boson, our universe is awash in waves.

Professor Matt Strassler, host of the website “Of Particular Significance”, and Andrea Wittgens, “silver-tongued” singer-songwriter-pianist, join forces to reflect on these notions from perspectives scientific, sonic and poetic.

They’ll sing us tales of the unknown, turn the volume down to the quantum level, shine photons on the mysterious particles of nature, and have fun doing it! And you’ll leave knowing why the grandest of all musical instruments is the universe itself.
