GIUSEPPE-MENTUCCIAIt has been said that in order and harmony, just like our own cells and in music, there is chaos. Artists further their ideas on reality and direct their chaotic and dissonant worlds into one of harmony. Salk Institute’s Science & Music Series is fusing the art of young, brilliant pianist Giuseppe Mentuccia and professor, and director of its Cancer Center, Tony Hunter. Mentuccia’s world brings your blood rushing with each fascinating chord, charged with his passions from improvisation to contemporary works. Professor Hunter will trigger your synapses with his lab’s latest compositions, researching how cells regulate their own growth and division, and how mutations in genes lead to cancer.
