Slim Essid will be at CCRMA to talk about using NMF to analyze audio signals for auditory scene analysis, and to decompose EEG signals into their independent sources. Both important tasks.
Nori Jacoby studies the role of culture in auditory perception. His current work uses iterated learning alongside classical psychophysical methods to characterize perceptual biases in music and speech rhythms in various populations ranging from Westerners to the Tsimané, an Amazonian foraging-farming society in Bolivia. He is also working on computational modeling of synchronization and entrainment in jembe drum ensembles in Mali. Nori completed a Ph.D.
Their debut album ORGANVM PERCEPTVM, five years in the making, will be out on Santa Cruz label Indexical in 2016. For more info, visit indexical.org.
