Hello and welcome back.
Today we’d like to share a very special video we produced on a couple incredible people we happened to meet while strolling through an open air market in downtown Tallahassee Florida. They, Jack and Richard, were providing the background entertainment for folks walking, talking and enjoying the warmth of the day. As we stopped to watch we could see and hear the incredible musical talent they possessed. When they went on break, we struck up a conversation that quickly turned into a connection that was more than just idle chit chat. As we parted, we agreed to get together and talk about doing a story on them. A week or so later we sat together at Au Peche Mignon, a little downtown French pastry shop and it was then we learned the depth of these two nonchalant musicians.
Aside from being accomplished musicians each of them is a professor at Florida State University holding the distinguished title of PhD. Jacks field of study being complex analysis and biomathematics and Richards mathematical neuroscience, mathematical physiology and dynamical systems. As we sat and talked it became apparent these two humble men have impacted the world in incredible ways through their works in the field of mathematics. It was interesting however to note as we listened and talked to hear their deep rooted first love and passion to write and play music.
As you watch the video you will see why we gave it the subtitle of “Mathematician or Musician?”. We cannot begin to express our gratitude to Jack and Richard for opening their hearts and homes and sharing their story with us. We hope you enjoy “Quanta – The Story 2019”.
