Kurt James Werner
I'm Dr. Kurt James Werner, a Lecturer in Audio @ the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) @ Queen's University Belfast. I'm active as a researcher and writer, composer of electro-acoustic/acousmatic (&c.) music, author of digital signal processing code & compositional algorithms, & circuit-bender. My research focuses on theoretical aspects of wave digital filters and other virtual analog topics, computer modeling of circuit-bent instruments, & the history of music technology.
I earned my Ph.D. in Computer-Based Music Theory and Acoustics from Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). As part of my doctorate I wrote a dissertation called “Virtual Analog Modeling of Audio Circuitry Using Wave Digital Filters” & a number of other papers & articles. Please find a list of my research published while at Stanford (pre-2017) below.
