After the the sun goes down, we'll have some live visual artists perform stunning stage visuals behind our performers. So bring your friends, hang out on the lawn, and indulge yourself in this incredible audio-visual experience. <br /> <br /> <strong>LINEUP: </strong><br /> Teebs <br /> ClearEyes <br /> Arswain <br /> David Grunzweig<br /> Alta Mar <br /> Kurt Werner <br /> Yan Michalevsky <br /> M$G <br /> Ethan Geller and Friends <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> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/modulations-festival-2015-featuring-teebs#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3959 Thu, 30 Apr 2015 20:52:45 +0000 rmichon 3959 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Naomi Harte - ViSQOL, An objective measure for speech quality https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/naomi-harte-visqol-objective-measure-speech-quality <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, 05/01/2015 - <span class="date-display-start">11:30am</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 Seminar Room (Top Floor of the Knoll) </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="157" height="200" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/malcolm/naomi_harte.jpg?1427418549" /> </div> </div> </div> How do humans judge perceptual quality of a signal? It&rsquo;s easy to measure mean-squared error, but that is not how the brain measures quality&mdash;that would be too easy. Instead, we want to look inside the brain to see how sound is encoded. This problem is important as we build more devices that process sound and we need to assess whether they are doing a good job. Naomi&rsquo;s work addresses the problem when we have access to the original and the modified sound. It&rsquo;s an improvement over the PESQ and POLQA work, if you are familiar with the area. <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/naomi-harte-visqol-objective-measure-speech-quality" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/naomi-harte-visqol-objective-measure-speech-quality#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3899 Fri, 27 Mar 2015 01:09:45 +0000 malcolm 3899 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Acoustic Source Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks: Model and Numerical Algorithm https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/acoustic-source-localization-in-wireless-sensor-networks-model-and-numerical-algorithm <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, 04/30/2015 - <span class="date-display-start">5:15pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">7:00pm</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 Classroom [Knoll 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> DSP 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="200" height="150" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/jos/jianhua_yuan.jpg?1428535958" /> </div> </div> </div> <h1>Acoustic Source Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks: Model and Numerical Algorithm</h1> <p><strong>Abstract:</strong> Jianhua Yuan will present a series of techniques, based upon the energy based acoustic features, to locate a sound source given measurements of the sound field. For wireless ad hoc sensor network applications, energy based acoustic features is an appropriate choice since the acoustic power emitted by targets, such as moving vehicles usually varies slowly with respect to time. In this approach, mathematical models and new numerical methods may be used to yield higher accuracy in terms of source location estimates compared to the earlier method.<br /> &nbsp;</p><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/acoustic-source-localization-in-wireless-sensor-networks-model-and-numerical-algorithm" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/acoustic-source-localization-in-wireless-sensor-networks-model-and-numerical-algorithm#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3931 Wed, 08 Apr 2015 23:36:05 +0000 jos 3931 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Application of Acoustics for Underwater ROVs https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/application-of-acoustics-underwater-rovs <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, 04/29/2015 - <span class="date-display-start">5:15pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">7:00pm</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 Classroom </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> 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="112" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/sleitman/48470-openrov_teaser.jpg?1429806946" /> </div> </div> </div> <p class="p1">Signaling and navigating in the underwater world presents challenges for traditional approaches such as radio waves and light.

This talk will discuss the role of internal sound and self-referent external sound in relation to proprioceptive processes, or the sense of oneself in physical space.&nbsp; Sound compositions may have the capacity to change proprioceptive mappings through inducing otherwise unknowable quasi-spatial experience. We will speculate on possible reasons why it may be so. How is it that certain kinds of sound patterns can cause a deviation from what is otherwise normalized expectations of events in time.<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/guest-lecture-julia-litman-cleper-sound-mappings-inhabiting-virtual-geometry-through-sound" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/guest-lecture-julia-litman-cleper-sound-mappings-inhabiting-virtual-geometry-through-sound#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3929 Wed, 08 Apr 2015 17:48:17 +0000 mhuberth 3929 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Recent progress in efficient physics-based synthesis of string instrument sound https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/recent-progress-in-efficient-physics-based-synthesis-of-string-instrument-sound <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, 04/23/2015 - <span class="date-display-start">5:15pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">7:00pm</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 Classroom [Knoll 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> DSP 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="153" height="200" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/nando/estebanmaestre.png?1428986841" /> </div> </div> </div> <b><br /> ABSTRACT<br /> <br /> </b>Applications combining digital waveguides, modal synthesis, and finite-difference time-domain modeling will be presented in the context of efficient simulation of string instruments.<br /> <br /> The first part of this talk will introduce a technique for modeling bridge admittances and body radiativity profiles from frequency response measurements on guitars and bowed string instruments.
