Take a look at our Upcoming Events list - there are already tons of exciting things planned for this year, and more will be added as we go forward.
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.
Sonami’s sound installations combine audio and kinetic elements embedded in ubiquitous objects such as light bulbs, rubber gloves, bags and more recently toilet plungers. She collects electrical wire and embroids them in walls.

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.
