Final Project

Presentations I on Wed, 5-Dec 1:30-3:20pm
Presentations II on Wed, 12-Dec 3:30-6:30pm (extending later, dinner included)


Complete a "mini-project" by the final project presentation date with documentation and any associated code or.wave files uploaded to the homework factory (fp.html). Choose one of the two dates and signup a slot to present in. The content is entirely up to you to invent/create/implement and present. A project can include short recorded pieces or performances, new synthesis methods and algorithms for music making, and more. Use Chuck for the music programming and use as many or as few audio channels as the work dictates. Web Audio and/or Faust are also options for languages to use.

Presentation of your work should be from your own laptop computer.

If using 4 channels, also post for turn-in an ambisonic encoded version in the way presented in HW2 and HW3. Any multi-channel content (i.e., greater than stereo) will need an external soundcard attached to your laptop and should be tested in the Stage before the 3-hour final project siege.

Note that you'll have limited time to present, so consider logistics in your presentation planning!
