Many of Bach’s works showed a unusual devotion to economy and concentration, melodic and contrapuntal writing of ravishing beauty derived from a single intricate theme, finding much in little, multum in parvo.

Our program is a collaboration between San Francisco’s historical-instrument Galax Quartet, triple harpist Cheryl Ann Fulton, and award-winning science fiction writer and mathematician Rudy Rucker, who will present his striking images of cellular automata, visually beautiful examples of multum in parvo.

    This looks like a fantastic marriage of art, philosophy and machine. If I were in SiValley and I had to choose one of your 2007 gigs this is the one I’d pick. Hope you and your musical friends get a good crowd, and have a fine reception afterward.

    Tell them I’m jealous of their waking reality. 🙂
