Devon More Music—Onstage at Pantages
What a cute, quaint and delightful show! If you didn’t know better, you would think that this is a musician sitting at home in a basement studio mixing together tracks to crank out a tune. With an elegance of ease, More shows us how easy it is to put together a catchy tune—well if you’re talented like her. If you’re like me, you’ll have a cacophony of ill-conceived noises. Every song plays nicely pitched with the topic, backed by a toe-tapping rhythm.
About the topic, I took intro to physics 30 years ago. I’ve forgotten a lot more than I learned (including the construction of E=MC2) but I do remember the fundamentals. What More delivers to you in a quasi-music backed lecture employs actual and accurate depictions of physics fundamentals (don’t let that scare you off!). Either More has some actual physics background or she did some good research before putting together this program. Either way, the outcome is wonderful.
As the lecture progresses, it turns away from academia into a world of introspection and finally contemplation. As with theoretical physics, we just don’t have all the answers. Or do we? If I end up seeing More’s show again tomorrow, I’ll know! Or is that today?
