Guerino Mazzola Wikipedia
Guerino Mazzola (born 1947) is a Swiss mathematician, musicologist, jazz pianist as well as book writer.
Mazzola graduated at the University of Zürich in Mathematics, Theoretical Physics and Crystallography and completed his PhD in Mathematics in 1971. In 1980, he habilitated in Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory. In 2000, he was awarded the medal of the Mexican Mathematical Society. In 2003, he habilitated in Computational Science at the University of Zürich.
Mazzola has recorded several free jazz CDs with musicians like Mat Maneri, Heinz Geisser, Sirone, Jeff Kaiser, Scott Fields, Matt Turner and Rob Brown.
Mazzola is well known (Alexander Grothendieck (Das ist wohl schon die Mathematik des neuen Zeitalters.)) for his application of sophisticated mathematical concepts such as topos theory to music theory, described in his book The Topos of Music. The result has been somewhat controversial, drawing praise from some mathematicians and music theorists, Alexander Grothendieck (Das ist wohl schon die Mathematik des neuen Zeitalters.), Yuri Manin, Yves André, François Nicolas and Thomas Noll, and dissent from others (among others: Dmitri Tymoczko (If you can't learn algebraic geometry, he sometimes seems to be saying, then you have no business trying to understand Mozart.)).
Currently he is Professor at the School of Music at the University of Minnesota. Since 2007 he is the president of the Society for Mathematics and Computation in Music.Mazzola/Piano Solo Kelvin Null OMP Records 1001 LP
