Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics
CCRMA Open House
Save the date!
On Friday, March 3, 2017, we invite anyone who is interested in seeing what we've be up to at CCRMA to come explore! From 10-5, the whole house will be open, with demonstrations, open classes, posters, music, and more in most nooks and crannies of the Knoll.
Then, at 5PM, join us for a beer, snacks, conversation, and music in our backyard.
Please join us! https://ccrma.stanford.edu/ccrma-open-house
Summer Workshops 2017 Announced!
Abstract: The NESS project (standing for Next Generation Sound Synthesis), funded through a Starting Grant from the European Research Council for five years beginning on January 1, 2012 is an exploratory project, concerned entirely with synthetic sound—and in particular, numerical simulation techniques for physical modelling sound synthesis in parallel hardware. It is a joint project between the Acoustics and Audio Group and the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre, both at the University of Edinburgh. The models developed in the course of the project span a large set of systems, including brass, cymbals and gongs, percussions, guitar/fretboard interaction, bowed strings and large 3D room acoustics simulations.

From the article: At first glance, she was elderly and delicate – a woman in her 90s with a declining memory. But then she sat down at the piano to play. “Everybody in the room was totally startled,” says Eleanor Selfridge-Field, who researches music and symbols at Stanford University. “She looked so frail. Once she sat down at the piano, she just wasn’t frail at all. She was full of verve.” Read more here...
"In My Lai, a monodrama for tenor, string quartet, and Vietnamese instruments, composer Jonathan Berger had countless tragic elements at his disposal... In this immersive performance, we had the sense that, rather than defaulting to the story's obvious tragic details, Berger illuminate a single, more subtle element - the outraged bewilderment we often feel in the face of unimaginable horror."
