Drumming and Science

The latest Sixty Symbols video features Professor Phil Moriarty talking about his passions - physics, mathematics and drumming.

Phil discusses a great recent paper on the topic of drumming.

But perhaps even more exciting, in a second video he reveals plans for his own research project into the topic (well, with help from students).

Read more from Phil about it here.

His research depends of volunteers (maybe you?) contributing drum samples.

Also thanks to Sean Riley for being our last-minute drummer. Sean will be known to many as the man who creates nearly all the Computerphile videos.

Lastly, here is more of Phil being a wannabe rocker from a previous Numberphile video.
