Music teacher’s piece performed at music and neuroscience event

A piece composed by upper school instrumental music teacher Jaco Wong was performed in late March by the New World Symphony in Miami. The composition, called “Inkling,” was part of a collaboration with artist Evan Tedlock and Enrique Vargas, a neuroscientist at UCSF’s Sound and Music Perception Lab, where Wong composed the piece while his brainwaves were recorded. Tedlock turned the resulting information into an animated short film that accompanied the performance of the piece, which took place as part of By Ear: A Journey Into Musical Perception, a special event about the intersection of music and neuroscience.
