Sound Science is a S.T.E.A.M. program exploring both music and the scientific properties of sound. Demonstrating the tonal qualities of both the acoustic and electric cellos, Gideon explains the mathematical aspects of music such as how music is divided into beats, measures and phrases, and acoustic qualities including sound vibrations, pitch, and timbre. Using the electric cello and real-time digital effects, he shows how notes can be echoed, repeated, distorted, and augmented in many exciting and unexpected ways.
