Mr. Cable's Low-Fi Reverberator
by Jonathan Abel

A computational structure capable of producing distorted, pitch manipulated reverberation is described.  The distortion is virtually free of intermodulation products, making it appropriate for use with material having dense harmonies.   The pitch manipulation permits large pitch shifts as well as a kind of scrambling of the frequency axis, including an effect similar to pitch inversion.  Sound examples, including distorted room and spring reverberation, two-octave pitch shifting and an inverted guitar, are presented

CCRMA Classroom

Guest Colloquium
Today we are witnessing the transformation process from new media to post media situation which is characterized not only by equality and convergence of different media technologies but also by emergence of new "techno-ecological" paradigm. Artists, like those from the Renewable Network who once were in vanguard exploring digital frontiers, today are among those who are engaged in the quest for a more sustainable future. By working together with scientists and farmers, urban gardeners and rural communities, media archeologists and future visionaries, the artists are bringing to foreground ecological issues, yet staying rooted in new media.

Moving Auditory EEGs out of the Lab

Date: 
Fri, 02/13/2015 - 11:00am - 12:30pm
Location: 
CCRMA Seminar Room
Event Type: 
Hearing Seminar

It's now time to take EEG out of the lab and into the real world. Our speaker on February 13 will talk about his efforts to build a mobile EEG recording device and validate its performance with an auditory task.  Maarten De Vos received his PhD from KU Leuven (Belgium) and is visiting Stanford for a few months, before heading to a faculty position at Oxford.

His validation experiments are interesting because he describes them as a means of decoding attention.  He's using P300 attention-modulated correlates to measure what people are attending to.  Very interesting.

  Who: Maarten De Vos (University of Oldenberg, Oxford and visiting Stanford)
