MUS423 Research Seminars

The CCRMA Music 423 Research Seminar brings graduate students and supervising faculty together for planning and discussion of original research. Students and faculty meet either in small groups or individually, as appropriate for the research topics and interests of the participants. Research carried out is typically presented at the weekly CCRMA Colloquium (if it is of general interest to the CCRMA community) or at a Special DSP Seminar scheduled for that purpose.  In either case, announcements appear on the CCRMA Home Page as Upcoming Events.

  • Talk - Sound Source Separation

    Date: 
    Tue, 03/06/2012 - 5:15pm - 6:45pm
    Location: 
    CCRMA Classroom
    Event Type: 
    DSP Seminar
    Rob Bullen is an acoustician who has been working at CCRMA for six months on a “sound source separation” project. The idea is that this would provide a method of field recording that will allow the recorded sound to be used in a musical context, by separating out individual sounds for processing, re-positioning, etc. At present, “Sonic Distillery” is a prototype with 14 tiny microphones and other odd-looking pieces, and some array processing software.

  • Sound in the External Environment

    Date: 
    Fri, 11/18/2011 - 4:15pm - 5:05pm
    Location: 
    CCRMA Classroom, Knoll 217
    Event Type: 
    DSP Seminar
    For this week's DSP Seminar, Rob Bullen will be talking about outdoor sound propagation.  Rob's talk covers things we understand and things we don't about external sound propagation, and includes some simple simulations as a starting point for modeling.  Rob's talk will be in the Classroom at 4:15 PM today.  Abstract follows.

  • Estimating Room Impulse Responses from Recorded Balloon Pops

    Date: 
    Fri, 11/19/2010 - 3:15pm - 4:05pm
    Location: 
    CCRMA Classroom, Knoll 217
    Event Type: 
    DSP Seminar
    For this week's DSP Seminar, Jonathan Abel will be describing a method for converting balloon pop recordings into room impulse responses.  This work was done as part of the Icons of Sound project for the purpose of simulating the acoustics of Hagia Sophia, and an auralization of the Cherubic Hymn (written for Hagia Sophia) will be presented. The seminar will be held 3:15--4:05 PM, Friday, November 19, in the CCRMA Classroom, Knoll 217.  Abstract follows.

    Audiotactile Interaction and Music, Ercan Altinsoy.  In our daily life, sound is usually produced by the vibrations of a body. These vibrations in our natural environment lead to both auditory and tactile perceptions. In many situations, such as playing a guitar, driving a car, drilling a hole, etc., we are exposed to sound and vibration simultaneously. Perception is a multisensory phenomenon and one major capability of our perceptual system is the integration of the multisensory stimuli which are generated by a multimodal event.
