Title: Experimental Knot Music
Abstract: In knot theory, there are algebraic structures we can use to distinguish different types of knots and links. In this talk we will ask an unexpected question: what do they sound like? We will see a number of techniques I have been developing for interpreting knot-theoretic structures as elements of musical composition.
