"Many scientists and engineers have a deep affinity for music. I suspect it’s because both science and engineering are rooted in trying to comprehend deep and hidden structures. The appeal of uncovering those hidden structures is part of what draws many who love science and engineering to music as well.”

— Alex Rigopulos ’92 ’94, an MIT music major alumnus,  who, along with Eran Egozy ’95, founded Harmonix Music Systems
