Sounding Bodies, by Peter Pesic (published by MIT Press) explores the unfolding influence of music and sound on the fundamental structure of the biomedical sciences, from ancient times to the present. This work follows Pesic's Music and the Making of Modern Science and Polyphonic Minds to complete a trilogy of books about the influence of music on the sciences. Pesic was educated at Harvard and Stanford, where he received a doctorate in physics. He is currently director of the Science Institute at St. John’s College and Musician-in-Residence. He is an Associate Professor at Harvard's Department of Physics.
Pesic is an accomplished musician and will be performing the complete nocturnes of Gabriel Fauré for piano over two lunchtime concerts at Fuller Lodge on December 8th and December 9th. (The daytime concerts will be held in person only). Click here for more information about these performances.
