Computing at CCRMA

  • CCRMA Wiki editing [1]
  • Interesting places on the CCRMA network:
User directories
Other useful network mounts
Local partitions on CCRMA hosts
/zap, /scratch, /audio
  • CCRMA Net
  • The Departmental Firewall and creative network ports, plan ahead.
  • Default shell: currently tcsh. Can change to bash or other shell. Contact Sys Admins.
  • Unix: command line practice lab:
ssh, slogin
mkdir -p

Jonathan Berger's orchestral, chamber, vocal and electroacoustic works have been performed throughout the world. Miracles and Mud, Berger's recent Naxos recording of music for solo violin and string quartet has received considerable critical acclaim. Berger's recent commissions include The Bridal Canopy (Berger's fourth string quartet, composed for the St. Lawrence String Quartet and commissioned by the Friends of Chamber Music, Denver), Tears In Your Hand (Commissioned by Chamber Music Toronto for the Gryphon Trio), and Of Hammered Gold (Commissioned by Chamber Music America). Major past commissions include the National Endowment for the Arts, The Rockefeller Foundation, WDR, the Bourges Festival and the Mellon Fund. Current commissions include works for Ensmble Meitar, Trio Voce, violist Gilad Karmi, and Fulcrum Point. Berger's works are available on Naxos, Sony, Neuma, CRI and Harmonia Mundi. In addition to composition Berger is an active researcher with over 60 publications in a wide range of fields relating to music, science and technology. Berger is The Denning Family Provostial Professor at Stanford and Co-Director of the Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts (SICA) and the University's arts initiative.

10/10 Tom Rossing, Ge Wang, Ed Berdahl

Thomas D. Rossing (Distinguished Research Professor of Physics Emeritus, Northern Illinois University and Visiting Professor of Music at Stanford University) is the author of over 400 publications, including 18 books, mostly on magnetism and acoustics. His latest books are the Springer Handbook of Acoustics and The Science of String Instruments, which is currently in press at Springer. He is also writing a chapter for the 3rd edition of The Psychology of Music by Diana Deutsch. He has directed church choirs and handbell choirs, played clarinet in orchestras and chamber ensembles, and appeared as tenor soloist. He has been a visiting professor at universities in Korea and Scotland as well as in the United States.

He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, The Acoustical Society of America, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and IEEE. He was awarded the Silver Medal in Musical Acoustics and the Gold Medal in Acoustics by the Acoustical Society of America and the Robert Millikan Medal by the American Association of Physics Teachers. He will receive the Rayleigh Medal from the Mexican Institute of Acoustics in November. His biography appears in Who’s Who in America and in the New Groves Dictionary of Music and Musicians.

Ge Wang is an Assistant Professor at Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), and researches interactive software systems for computer music, programming languages, social/mobile music, and education at the intersection of computer science and music. Ge is the author of the ChucK audio programming language, the founding director of the Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk), and the co-founder and director of the Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra (MoPhO). Ge is also the Co-founder, CTO, and Chief Creative Officer of Smule, and the designer of the iPhone's Ocarina and the iPad's Magic Piano.

Edgar Berdahl is a lecturer in the Music Department at Stanford University in California, USA. Prior to receiving his PhD from Stanford, Berdahl earned a BS in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at UC Berkeley. His research interests include physical modeling, human-computer interaction, robotics, signal processing, and sound synthesis. He seeks to enhance "digital" musical interactions so that they "seem more analog."

10/17 New Student Presentations, Dinner

New students have 5 minutes to introduce themselves the CCRMA Community and talk about the type of research and creating they have done or are interested in doing. Delicious dinner from Mediterranean Wraps ($5 donation requested).
