Composer Ray Lustig shares how artists in creative field deal with limitations, much like how scientists deal them in experimentations.

Ray Lustig is a renown composer and scientist and has achieved numerous accolades in each discipline. His music has been presented in venues ranging from New York City clubs and galleries to major concert halls and festivals around the world—from Le Poisson Rouge and Galapagos Art Space to Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the École Normale in Paris. Also a highly respected researcher in moleclar biology, Lustig is fascinated by science, nature, and the mind. He has helped to co-found the Juilliard Weill Cornell Music and Medicine Initiative, a collaborative project that explores the many intersections of music, the sciences, the mind, and the healing arts.
