The Science Group were an avant-rock group founded in France in 1997 by English drummer Chris Cutler from Henry Cow and Yugoslav contemporary classical composer and keyboardist Stevan Tickmayer. They released A Mere Coincidence, an album of songs on science related topics in 1999, and an instrumental album, Spoors in 2003.
The Science Group were seen by some as an "avant-prog nerd's dream band". Their music was principally avant-rock but also covered a variety of other genres including avant-garde jazz, contemporary classical, avant-garde, ambient and electronic. Piero Scaruffi described their Spoors album as a "... stylistic gamut from the frantic minimalism of 'Timeline 6' to the effervescent rock'n'roll and drum'n'bass of 'Timeline 5', from the piano avantgarde of 'Dispersants' to the circus music of 'Marching Off' (a bagatelle)".
