These devices are powerful, connected and equipped with a variety of sensors. Their pervasiveness has created an opportunity to realize parametrically controlled, physically modeled, virtual musical instruments. moForte inc was founded to develop a line of sonic and musical applications for handheld devices. We developed the &quot;moForte Guitar Stack&quot; which models the guitar family of instruments. This stack has been used to used to develop applications for mobile devices. <br /> <br /> We give an overview of the history of physical modeling with many sound examples, and then brief overview of the current state of modeling on mobile devices using a few apps based on the moForte Guitar Stack. <br /><div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-cost"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FREE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-intended-audience"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Open to the Public </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/pat-scandalis-physically-modeled-musical-instruments-mobile-devices" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/pat-scandalis-physically-modeled-musical-instruments-mobile-devices#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3949 Thu, 16 Apr 2015 00:31:52 +0000 rmichon 3949 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu [Guest Colloquium] May 20th: Juan Pampin and Ake Parmerud https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/guest-colloquium-may-20th-juan-pampin-and-ake-parmerud <div class="field field-type-date field-field-event-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 05/20/2015 - <span class="date-display-start">5:15pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">6:30pm</span></span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-location"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Location:&nbsp;</div> CCRMA Classroom (Room 217) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-type"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Event Type:&nbsp;</div> Guest Colloquium </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="200" height="163" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/mhuberth/audioimmersion2.jpg?1432017062" /> </div> </div> </div> Please join us for a pre-concert lecture by &Aring;ke Parmerud&nbsp;and&nbsp;Juan Pampin<strong> &ndash;&nbsp;</strong>both masters of ambisonics and multichannel composition.

The use of compositional models has yielded state-of-the-art results in many audio processing tasks, such as sound source separation and music content analysis. In this presentation, I will give an overview of compositional model approaches to noise-robust automatic speech recognition (ASR) and discuss methods to build a dictionary of sound components. I will then show how compositional models can also be used to learn recurrent acoustic patterns representing words or phrases, with as application the construction of a language-independent vocal interface.<div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-cost"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FREE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-intended-audience"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Open to the Public </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/compositional-models-audio-processing" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/compositional-models-audio-processing#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3964 Thu, 07 May 2015 16:47:30 +0000 malcolm 3964 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Troy Rogers - The MEARIS Concept: Making Music with Modular Electro-Acoustic Robotic Instrument Systems https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/troy-rogers-mearis-concept-making-music-with-modular-electro-acoustic-robotic-instrument-syst <div class="field field-type-date field-field-event-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Thu, 05/14/2015 - <span class="date-display-start">12:00pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">1:00pm</span></span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-location"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Location:&nbsp;</div> CCRMA Stage </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-type"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Event Type:&nbsp;</div> Guest Lecture </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="200" height="133" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/sleitman/robotrickshaw_lakewalk_profile_2014-10-25_mjm_1200px.jpg?1430510189" /> </div> </div> </div> In this presentation, Rogers will discuss various aspects of his creative work with musical robots and other devices, with a focus on hybrid robotic instrument systems in which the robotic aspect can function as an automatically tunable acoustic filter as well as acoustic sound source, a scenario which gives rise to increased parametric depth and expressive potential.<br /> <br /><div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-cost"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FREE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-intended-audience"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Open to the Public </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/troy-rogers-mearis-concept-making-music-with-modular-electro-acoustic-robotic-instrument-syst" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/troy-rogers-mearis-concept-making-music-with-modular-electro-acoustic-robotic-instrument-syst#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3960 Fri, 01 May 2015 19:54:05 +0000 sleitman 3960 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Guest Colloquium: Roger Schwenke - Designing the Meyer Sound Constellation System @ Lathrop Library https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/guest-colloquium-roger-schwenke-designing-meyer-sound-constellation-system-lathrop-library <div class="field field-type-date field-field-event-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 05/13/2015 - <span class="date-display-start">5:30pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">6:30pm</span></span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-location"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Location:&nbsp;</div> Room 282 at Lathrop Library </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-event-type"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Event Type:&nbsp;</div> Guest Colloquium </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="120" height="140" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/mhuberth/rogerschwenke.jpg?1430853648" /> </div> </div> </div> Did you know that the Meyer Sound Constellation System is installed in Room 282 at Lathrop Library?
