Composer Tod Machover will be giving a Keynote Talk called MUSIC, MEDICINE AND MEANING at the Mt.Sinai-Louis Armstrong Center symposium “Turned On, Tuned In” in NYC on May 2. Inspired by Marvin Minsky’s seminal paper “Music, Mind and Meaning,” Machover will be building on the Opera of The Future group’s recent work in music, mind and health to predict and project how music can restore health, promote wellbeing, and be a “laboratory for meaning” over the coming years. Looks like a very interesting conference; drop by if you’re in NYC that day. Full schedule here. Register for the conference here.
