  • Ruth E. Rosenberg
Ruth Rosenberg (University of Illinois at Chicago) will present a talk titled "Perfect Pitch: 432 Hz Music and the Promise of a Frequency" on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 from 3:30-5 pm in Music Room 1145. Drawing from research into the historical and scientific claims made by 432 Hz advocates, as well as from data collected from dedicated 432 Hz listeners, the talk will examine the promise of—and skepticism towards—the concept of “frequency” in this context. It will ask how the 432 Hz phenomenon relates to other internet-based forms of music consumption, self-tracking and wellness trends, and what Anahid Kassabian has called today’s culture of “ubiquitous listening.” Cosponsored by UCSB Ethnomusicology Forum, Music History and Theory Forum, and the Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Music (CISM).
