Dimitri Bouche - Scheduling & Time Structures in Computer­ Assisted Composition

Date: 
Wed, 02/04/2015 - 5:15pm - 6:15pm
Location: 
CCRMA Classroom
Event Type: 
Guest Colloquium
Music composers’ work with computers is generally divided in the two distinct stages of composition and performance. Each stage requires specific methodology and software: computer-­aided composition involves time and high computation capabilities to produce complex musical scores, while performance and live rendering require reactive environments with precise real‐time constraints. Contemporary music composers permanently challenge these kinds of established categories, using unusual objects and behaviors in their music or considering the variations in performance as an actual part of the composition.

Tricking the brain

Most interns don’t deliberately try to deceive executives at their employer’s company, but Dolby intern Jimmy Tobin was asked to do just that.
 
For a reception following a day of meetings for the company’s 90 top leaders, Tobin, a student of symbolic systems at Stanford University, and fellow interns working in the Science Group with Senior Staff Scientist Poppy Crum were asked to create a series of demonstrations of perceptual illusions.

Stanford scientists build a 'brain stethoscope' to turn seizures into music

When Chris Chafe and Josef Parvizi began transforming recordings of brain activity into music, they did so with artistic aspirations. The professors soon realized, though, that the work could lead to a powerful biofeedback tool for identifying brain patterns associated with seizures. Read more here...

The Stanford Ph.D Student Making Human Music with a Laptop

When it comes to music-making, laptops get a bad rap. They're cold, impersonal, inexpressive, and can't summon the warmth of traditional acoustic instruments. Or at least that's one way to look at it. Experimental musician Holly Herndon disagrees — and has spent much of her career exploring the expressive potential of the machines that are now an inseparable part of modern life. Read more here...

CCRMA's Rob Hamilton at Design Night

Our very own Rob Hamilton, along with his partner in crime Chris Platz, was at a recent Design Night at the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco. Rob and Chris were displaying their gaming-inspired work "Echo Canyon." Read more here.
