Bay Area Science Events

Neuroscientist and soprano Indre Viskontas will give a faculty artist recital this Monday, November 7th, 2016 at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

Part lecture, part musical performance, Dr. Viskontas will explore how your brains track time, both on the micro and macro levels. In the first half, she will give an overview of the brain basis of time perception, followed by a performance of three movements from a string quartet by Beethoven played by the Telegraph quartet. In the second half, she will discuss how time can seem to expand in highly emotional situations, as evidenced by the poetry and music of Faure’s La Bonne Chanson for voice, string quintet and piano.
