Event Description

Music as a Chariot Book Cover

A reception, reading and signing from Visual and Performing Arts Professor Richard K. Thomas' latest book, Music as a Chariot. Music as a Chariot offers a multidisciplinary perspective on how Theatre can be considered a type of music, and how that understanding can shape our entire approach to the performing arts. Tracing the origins of time and music, along with the evolutionary neuroscience of the human brain, the author explores how humans evolved to produce and experience the music rooted in the auditory expression of theatre, along with the practical implications of this concept - namely the fundamental techniques practitioners use in scoring theatre.
