(where Maths and Pop Culture Collide)

Who would have thought that pop culture and mathematics were such good friends? Or that musicians from Dylan to Drake were dropping maths references into their lyrics? Or that Joy Division’s Ian Curtis and French mathematician Evariste Galois had so much in common? Enter Kyle Evans and his trusty guitar, here to take you on a comedic musical tour through some unexpected parallels between maths & pop.

Kyle is a folk singer, comedian & maths teacher who was the 2016 UK winner of Famelab, an international competition to find the most exciting new voices in science communication. He has talked and sung about maths and pop at various festivals including Cheltenham Science Festival, Blissfields and Blue Dot and has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s cult numbers show ‘More or Less.’ He is also very proud of having his song about the Riemann Hypothesis used as a local radio jingle –  undoubtably a world first.

When Kyle isn’t singing he is doing maths and when he isn’t doing maths he is singing. So come prepared for an entertaining night for both maths enthusiasts and novices alike.
