Will Calhoun— Grammy Award-winning percussionist and member of Living Colour; winner of multiple drumming awards including "Best New Drummer" of 1988 and three-time "Number One Progressive Drummer" (1989, 1992, & 1992) by Modern Drummer Magazine's readers poll; and Best Drummer of 1990 by Rolling Stone Magazine's critics poll. Calhoun's music utilizes both the Korg Wavedrum and the Mandala Drum, integrating banks of effects and other technological enhancements into his performances.

"The Sound of Sci(l)ence" presents a three-day series of conversations, workshops, and performances exploring the intersection of music and quantum mechanics. Supported by a Mellon Arts Residency Planning Grant from Haverford's Hurford Humanities Center, the event pairs visiting artists Will Calhoun, Jaron Lanier, and Paul Miller (aka DJ Spooky) with Haverford faculty and students in an effort to widen the scope of quantum mechanics pedagogy through the study of sound, as well locate synergies with courses across the academic disciplines.
