Weston Olencki is a San Francisco-based trombonist specializing in the performance and production of new music. His work is primarily concerned with hyper-extended instrumental technique, intensive performer-composer collaboration, de-specialization of the performing body, noise, and alternative concepts of physicality within performance practice.

A video conferencing situation connects two rooms and is therefore a special case of coupled rooms. Thanks to efficient echo cancellation systems, feedback can largely be ignored for the analysis of the acoustical combinations. The simplified model of the sound transmission connects the two rooms via the convolution of the two room impulse responses. The resulting reverberation will be non-exponential, so the relationships between parameters such as reverberation time and clarity will be different from the classical single-room situation. This paper will use a simple impulse response model with a direct sound plus an exponential reverberation, which facilitates the analysis of the connected-room situation, and the comparison with classical coupled-room analysis.

"In My Lai, a monodrama for tenor, string quartet, and Vietnamese instruments, composer Jonathan Berger had countless tragic elements at his disposal... In this immersive performance, we had the sense that, rather than defaulting to the story's obvious tragic details, Berger illuminate a single, more subtle element - the outraged bewilderment we often feel in the face of unimaginable horror."
This issue of the Csound Journal features an article written by MST student Paul Batchelor, which can be found here:
"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).
