Music affected science from ancient Greece to the present. This talk
presents three seminal encounters between music and science: Johannes
Kepler using new astronomical observations to find the "song of the
Earth"; Isaac Newton imposing the musical octave on the spectrum; Max
Planck experimenting with harmoniums and choruses before turning to
black body radiation.
