Why does a sound catch your attention? What about a sound distracts you from another task? <br /> <br /> 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&rsquo;t. What causes some sounds to be salient, and to pop out from the background? <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/maria-chait-ucl-measuring-auditory-salience" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/maria-chait-ucl-measuring-auditory-salience#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/4294 Tue, 04 Oct 2016 00:21:10 +0000 malcolm 4294 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Colloquium: Sasha Leitman and Takako Fujioka https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/colloquium-sasha-leitman-and-takako-fujioka <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, 11/30/2016 - <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> 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> Internal Colloquium </div> </div> </div> Sasha Leitman: <strong>Current projects in physical interaction design for music and interactive sound art installations</strong><br /> I will give an overview of current projects including: Women on the Water (An aural history project focused on the women who have lived on their boats at Pier 39 in San Francisco) Music Maker (an educational resource that uses 3D printing and instrument building to teach acoustics), Sonic Windows (An imersive sound environment that allows users to hear live stereo feeds of underwater sound at listening stations along waterfront areas).<br /> <br /> Takako Fujioka: <strong>Musical structure and plasticity in brain</strong><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/colloquium-sasha-leitman-and-takako-fujioka" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/colloquium-sasha-leitman-and-takako-fujioka#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/4357 Sun, 27 Nov 2016 07:11:31 +0000 mhuberth 4357 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Decoding EEG and MEG Signals https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/decoding-eeg-and-meg-signals <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">Fri, 11/18/2016 - <span class="date-display-start">10:30am</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">12:00pm</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 Seminar Room </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> Hearing Seminar </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="182" height="200" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/malcolm/sa.jpg?1478910160" /> </div> </div> </div> As computational power and algorithms improve we can move from event-based to signal-decoding processing of EEG and MEG signals. Many EEG and MEG experiments are performed by looking for a change in the shape of an (average) response, or by changes in spectral energy due to changing experimental conditions. But new algorithms aim to provide a continuous estimate of the state of the brain and its inputs that generated the measured MEG/EEG signals. This is called decoding, and the dictionary says &quot;Decoding converts (a coded message) into intelligible language.<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/decoding-eeg-and-meg-signals" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/decoding-eeg-and-meg-signals#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/4350 Sat, 12 Nov 2016 00:22:50 +0000 malcolm 4350 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Network Audio Concert - CCRMA and Buenos Aires https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/network-audio-concert-ccrma-and-buenos-aires <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, 11/17/2016 - <span class="date-display-start">5:00pm</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 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> Concert </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="200" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/ecallery/network_show_0.jpg?1472515034" /> </div> </div> </div> CCRMA will be joined telematically by the DAMUS Electroacoustic Ensemble in Buenos Aires for the ultimate in spatial musical performance... several thousand miles and the speed of light! <br /> <br /> Music and videos by:<br /> <br /> Francisco Kr&ouml;pf<br /> Guillermo Pozzati<br /> Gustavo Garc&iacute;a Novo<br /> Pablo M.

One of the most important sources of information are spatial cues. Sources that we wish to distinguish are often spatially separated, and sounds that we want to integrate almost always come from a single direction. But what happens when the cues are conflicting? &nbsp;This might happen with bad stereo reproduction, or with bad hearing aids.&nbsp;<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/listening-effort-depends-acoustic-cues-brain-uses-sound-segregation-and-selective-attention" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/listening-effort-depends-acoustic-cues-brain-uses-sound-segregation-and-selective-attention#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/4330 Sat, 29 Oct 2016 17:09:27 +0000 malcolm 4330 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Kurt James Werner's Dissertation Defense: Virtual Analog Modeling Using Wave Digital Filters https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/kurt-james-werners-dissertation-defense-virtual-analog-modeling-using-wave-digital-filters <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, 11/10/2016 - <span class="date-display-start">3:30pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">5:30pm</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 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="160" height="200" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/kwerner/kurtwernercolors_0.jpg?1477961829" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Jimi Hendrix.
