This is Not A Lecture - an evening with A Capella Science's Tim Blais

UBC Physics & Astronomy and the TRIUMF/UBC IsoSiM Program present "This Is
Not A Lecture - an evening with A Capella Science's Tim Blais."

Tim will perform several songs from his popular YouTube channel A Capella
Science, both solo and with the aide of his old Vancouver A Capella group
("Acapocalypse"). He will also share his own experience as both a science
graduate student and an independent new media artist, and offer some
observations about science culture. About the performer/speaker Tim
completed his Master's degree in Theoretical Physics at McGill University.
Starting out as a side project because of his love for music, his first
YouTube video "Rolling in Higgs" now has almost 800K views; Scientific
American blog suggested the video as possibly being "the single most
comprehensively nerdy endeavour ever conceived." This experience prompted
him to continue his venture, creating more science-themed YouTube videos.
Merging a capella, science, and pop songs, Tim became a YouTube sensation
- his most popular video, A Capella Science - Bohemian Gravity!, has
almost 3 million views to date. Tim's science-parody creations are 100%
originally recorded and made out of unaltered sounds from his mouth,
throat and vocal cords. Tim's unique combination of music, physics and
humour will be highlighted in this one-off performance at UBC.
