The first book by Brown University physics professor, Stephon Alexander, The Jazz of Physics has one of the most alluring sub-titles in memory: The Secret Link Between Music and the Structure of the Universe. Hard to top, right? It certainly worked on us here at Copacetic. This book has also received accolades from the likes of Brian Eno and Jaron Lanier.
