Mark Applebaum: on the Frontiers of Music

A composer and performer, Mark Applebaum garnered nearly half a million views during a TED talk when he provocatively declared Beethoven to be ‘boring.’ An engaging speaker and Stanford University professor, Applebaum will explore how boredom drives his creativity both in how he composes and the instruments he creates out of combs and doorstops. In his WMPAC address, Applebaum will explore what he calls the ‘frontiers of music’ as he explores the ‘sound world’ and the role of the inventor/composer, and demonstrates music made by cutting carrots and sawing wood, the silent music of conductors with no musicians, and much more on March 29.
