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.
Adaptive mixing of noisy and robust beamformers for enhancement, visualization and reproduction of sound fields
"Unlike sex or hunger, music doesn’t seem absolutely necessary to everyday survival – yet our musical self was forged deep in human history, in the crucible of evolution by the adaptive pressure of the natural world. That’s an insight that has inspired Chris Chafe, Director of Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (or CCRMA, stylishly pronounced karma).
