Performance info: April 10, 2022 at 4pm on the Aileen Getty Plaza.

Dr. Stephon Alexander
, a world-renowned theoretical cosmologist, jazz saxophonist, and current president of the National Society of Black Physicists, together with acclaimed bassist Melvin Gibbs founded the collaborative duo, God Particle, in response to Alexander’s 2016 book The Jazz of Physics. Their music is an exploration of the quantum concepts that are inherently embedded in jazz. Alexander and Gibbs identify theoretical physics constructs that have analogues in jazz, codify them, and create conceptualizations of those constructs that can be applied and used in music. In addition, Gibbs has developed and extended musical concepts directly inspired by The Jazz of Physics, in which Alexander speaks to how music informed the historical development of science and how his work as a scientist has been informed by his connection to jazz. For their performance at MOCA, God Particle will perform as God Particle Quartet with special guests Jaron Lanier, the multi instrumentalist and revered computer scientist often referred to as the father of virtual reality, and celebrated drummer Will Calhoun.
