How do you measure the size of a black hole? The motion of individual particles at the subatomic level? The possible shape of space-time itself? In short: How do you mathematically describe the world around you? The answer lies in the fascinating ways mathematicians use geometry and topology to study and understand the shape of nature, whether leaf formations, DNA entanglements, or quantum fields. Mysterious, complex, and undeniably captivating, the study of the shape of nature lies at the forefront of current research in both mathematics and science.

Katia Labèque - Shape Of My Heart (2009)  Music

Now Katia Labèque has released an album of solo performances and duets – the latter with three jazz piano giants in Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Gonzalo Rubalcaba, as well as two tracks for Sting on vocals, plus Dimension X producer/guitarist David Chalmin. The conversations with the three pianists all represent eloquent balances of Labeque's fragile precision against freewheeling improvisational energy. My Funny Valentine (with Hancock) shifts from wistful beginnings to a driving boogie; We Will Meet Again (with Corea) is a fitting tribute to composer Bill Evans's delicate clarity; and Besame Mucho (with Rubalcaba) grows turbulent in its middle section. Sting is a little theatrical, and Chalmin's Purple Diamond has a faintly David Brent-like fervency, but Erik Satie's Gnossienne No 3 is as exquisite as always. –John Fordham

With her latest, multivalent ECM New Series album, Meredith aimed to address ecology and climate change, she says: "Believing that music speaks more directly than words, I worked to make a piece with a fluid, perceptual field that could expand awareness of what we are in danger of losing. On Behalf of Nature is a meditation on our intimate connection to nature, its inner structures, the fragility of its ecology and our interdependence." Voices and instruments have equal weight: sometimes each is heard alone; sometimes they are blended to form a new, mysterious sound; sometimes they are combined to create intricate, layered, yet transparent sonic landscapes.
