Upcoming Events

Bruno Ruviaro: Cinema For The Ears

Date: 
Fri, 05/08/2015 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: 
Braun Rehearsal Hall
Event Type: 
Concert
A movie without images: what does that look like? Or should we say, how does it sound? In this immersive surround-sound concert, Brazilian composer Bruno Ruviaro becomes the DJ to guide you through a full evening dedicated to your ears. But is it music or cinema? With this unusual, genre-defying combination of dialogue, sound, music, and ambiance, let your imagination boldly go where it has never gone before!

Bruno will use CCRMA's 25.6 3D system currently set up at Braun Rehearsal Hall in the Braun Music Center to dazzel your mind/ears.

Troy Rogers - The MEARIS Concept: Making Music with Modular Electro-Acoustic Robotic Instrument Systems

Date: 
Thu, 05/14/2015 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: 
CCRMA Stage
Event Type: 
Guest Lecture
In this presentation, Rogers will discuss various aspects of his creative work with musical robots and other devices, with a focus on hybrid robotic instrument systems in which the robotic aspect can function as an automatically tunable acoustic filter as well as acoustic sound source, a scenario which gives rise to increased parametric depth and expressive potential.

Recent progress in efficient physics-based synthesis of string instrument sound

Date: 
Thu, 04/23/2015 - 5:15pm - 7:00pm
Location: 
CCRMA Classroom [Knoll 217]
Event Type: 
DSP Seminar

ABSTRACT

Applications combining digital waveguides, modal synthesis, and finite-difference time-domain modeling will be presented in the context of efficient simulation of string instruments.

The first part of this talk will introduce a technique for modeling bridge admittances and body radiativity profiles from frequency response measurements on guitars and bowed string instruments. The formulation, relying on modal analysis, is then used to construct reflectance and radiativity models enabling efficient simulation of string plucks via digital waveguides.

Guest Lecture: Julia Litman-Cleper. Sound Mappings: Inhabiting virtual geometry through sound.

Date: 
Thu, 04/23/2015 - 5:15pm - 6:00pm
Location: 
CCRMA Stage
Event Type: 
Guest Lecture
The experience of hearing one’s own voice “from the outside,” usually through an electronic device, is often at first described as “weird” or “strange” and jarring. This talk will discuss the role of internal sound and self-referent external sound in relation to proprioceptive processes, or the sense of oneself in physical space.  Sound compositions may have the capacity to change proprioceptive mappings through inducing otherwise unknowable quasi-spatial experience. We will speculate on possible reasons why it may be so. How is it that certain kinds of sound patterns can cause a deviation from what is otherwise normalized expectations of events in time.

Palette of sound: Triple CCRMAlite’s excursion through time

The Triple CCRMAlite performance this past Sunday at Bing Concert Hall was a celebration of three important dates for the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA): the 40th anniversary of CCRMA, the 50th anniversary of the first computer program for music on campus, and the 80th birthday of CCRMA founder John Chowning Ph.D. ’66. The program featured a science fair of student research in the lobby, as well as a concert showcasing works from Chowning, French composer Jean-Claude Risset, and former CCRMA Research Associate Bill Schottstaedt.
