Understanding salience is one aspect of understanding the perceptual loop. Sounds catch our attention, we attend to them, and we try not to be distracted. We live in a complicated world, with many sounds that we want to pay attention to, and even more sounds that we don’t. What causes some sounds to be salient, and to pop out from the background?
Students have been working extremely hard this quarter and their projects are really impressive! Come check out their audio plug-ins, video games, art installations, smartphone apps, interactive music softwares, etc.!
There will be poster sessions, short talks, performances, demos, etc.
These presentations will feature works by:
Nielsen Consumer Neuroscience uses measures of neurophysiology to develop insights into consumer experience and behavior. This presentation will provide an overview of those measures, test-retest reliability, validation to in-market sales, and how Nielsen scales neuroscience globally for work with multinational companies. Research at Nielsen provides further evidence that music, in particular, significantly affects advertising performance by influencing emotional engagement and memory activation, and by triggering semantic associations. Case study examples will demonstrate these effects and how consumer neuroscience methods are applied in practice.

Acoustics is the Science of Sound. Musical acoustics deals with the science and technology of musical sound. The study of musical acoustics is important for performers, conposers, researchers, instrument designers and builders, and serious listeneers.
This talk will highlight some of the hot topics in musical acoustics, the courses in acoustics at CCRMA, publications in musical acoustics, and the services provided by the Acoustical Society of America.

From the article: At first glance, she was elderly and delicate – a woman in her 90s with a declining memory. But then she sat down at the piano to play. “Everybody in the room was totally startled,” says Eleanor Selfridge-Field, who researches music and symbols at Stanford University. “She looked so frail. Once she sat down at the piano, she just wasn’t frail at all. She was full of verve.” Read more here...
"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."
