Combining autobiography, butoh and contemporary dance, video and a live digital soundscore by Christopher Jette, Sakamoto&rsquo;s Bllind Spot explores intercultural identity and the need to follow one&rsquo;s nature, even in traumatic times. Reflecting a passion for history, social justice and pop culture, Sakamoto traces personal episodes as an Asian-American, post-WW2 political events, America&rsquo;s fraught relationship with Asia, and contemporary crises around corporate militarism. &ldquo;We all have blind spots in our lives, mentally, emotionally, physically, and even socially and culturally,&rdquo; states Sakamoto.<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/blind-spot-michael-sakamoto-christopher-jette-open-rehearsal" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 09 Mar 2017 03:14:48 +0000 ecallery 4428 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Eric Young - Timing in the Auditory System https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/eric-young-timing-in-auditory-system <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, 03/10/2017 - <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="200" height="125" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/malcolm/15_03_eric_young.jpg?1488345810" /> </div> </div> </div> How does the auditory system preserve the high accuracy needed to represent temporal signals such as speech and music? (Well, really all sound.) Think about the precision needed to encode the onsets of sound, let alone the cues needed to perceive pitch and binaural. This precision is orders of magnitude more precise than any where else in the brain. And yet the brain does it one spike at a time. OK, there are lots of spikes. How does the brain represent time, and how does an ensemble of spikes tell us what we need to know about the sounds around us? What is the mechanism that allows this exquisite precision?<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/eric-young-timing-in-auditory-system" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 01 Mar 2017 05:25:46 +0000 malcolm 4425 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Sketching Sound: Spencer Salazar's Dissertation Defense https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/sketching-sound-spencer-salazars-dissertation-defense <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, 03/09/2017 - <span class="date-display-start">5:00pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">6:00pm</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> Other </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="113" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/spencer/ag-promo3_1920x1080.jpg?1488449951" /> </div> </div> </div> <div>Spencer Salazar will present a defense of his doctoral dissertation, titled &quot;Sketching Sound:&nbsp;Gestural Interaction for Expressive Music Programming.&quot; We have developed two prototype systems to explore programming music using mobile touchscreen interactions and technologies.
