This talk argues for increased attention to the possibilities for this mode of computer music on the part of both creative artists and institutions that support advanced aesthetic research. We first consider the large role that timbre composition has played in computer music, and posit that this research direction may be showing signs of diminishing returns. We next propose spatial computer music for large numbers of speakers as a relatively unexplored area with significant potential, considering reasons for the relative preponderance of timbre composition over spatial composition.</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/eric-lyon-music-composition-hdlas-high-density-loudspeaker-arrays" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sat, 14 May 2016 03:32:52 +0000 kermit 4240 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu hk&tcs https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/hktcs-0 <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">Sun, 05/15/2016 - <span class="date-display-start">8:00pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">9:00pm</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> 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/12046609_609942499563_1738142641143048786_n-2.jpg?1461788775" /> </div> </div> </div> Weston Olencki, Helen Newby and Bethanne Walker perform premieres by Dan Tramte and Santiago Diez-Fischer as well as music by Matthias Kranebitter and Chris Swithinbank, with a new arrangement of Michelle Lou&rsquo;s untitled three part construction for trombone + two performers + objects.<br /> <br /> Program: <br /> Dan Tramte - #hijackthishashtag [2016] solo untrained voice, objects, edibles, melodica, hacked DJ-hero controller, and live video *world premiere<br /> <br /> Santiago Diez-Fischer - sensitive switch [2016] for trombone, cello, and electronics *world premiere<br /> <br /> Matthias Kranebitter - packtheboxwithsixdozenofmyliquorjugs [2013] for flute, trombone, and piano <br /> <br /> Chris Swithinbank - local bond [2015] for viola, cello, and four performers<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/hktcs-0" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/hktcs-0#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/4229 Wed, 27 Apr 2016 20:26:56 +0000 ecallery 4229 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Music Information Retrieval/Data Science Symposium https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/music-information-retrievaldata-science-symposium <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">Sat, 05/14/2016 - <span class="date-display-start">10:00am</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> <br /> On Saturday, May 14, CCRMA is hosting a one-day Music and the Brain symposium.

In most instances, such interaction is effortless and efficient, even when we are faced with highly variable and often unpredictable behavioral events. Key to achieving such coordination and cooperation is being able to predict or anticipate the behaviors of other individuals. Research investigating the mechanisms that support behavioral anticipation has traditionally focused on hypotheses formulated to explain how the human nervous system compensates for the temporal delays that occur between the production of a movement and the perception of its outcome (i.e., feedback).</p><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/auriel-washburn-anticipatory-synchronization-of-chaotic-behaviors-in-humans-and-artificial-ag" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/auriel-washburn-anticipatory-synchronization-of-chaotic-behaviors-in-humans-and-artificial-ag#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/4237 Fri, 06 May 2016 14:33:52 +0000 mhuberth 4237 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Sile O'Modhrain - Once more, with feeling: Revisiting the role of touch in performer-instrument interaction https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/sile-omodhrain-once-more-with-feeling-revisiting-role-of-touch-in-performer-instrument-intera <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, 05/11/2016 - <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> 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="156" height="189" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/mhuberth/sile-omodhrain-head-shot.jpg?1459402142" /> </div> </div> </div> Instrumentalists are acutely aware of the &ldquo;feel&rdquo; of an instrument, of the way in which it responds to their subtlest actions as they play.&nbsp; For acoustic instruments, actions of the player are directly correlated with the nature of the energy supplied to the instrument&rsquo;s excitation mechanism.&nbsp; For electronic instruments the nature of this relationship is less likely to be directly dictated by the instrument&rsquo;s sound-producing mechanism, so that the coupling between action and sound must be defined as part of the design process.&nbsp; In either case, where there is direct physical contact between the player and the instrument, this exchange of energy takes place across a point of coupling between the body of the player and the body of the instrument.&nbsp; En<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/sile-omodhrain-once-more-with-feeling-revisiting-role-of-touch-in-performer-instrument-intera" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/sile-omodhrain-once-more-with-feeling-revisiting-role-of-touch-in-performer-instrument-intera#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/4199 Thu, 31 Mar 2016 05:29:08 +0000 mhuberth 4199 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Dissertation Defense, Blair Kaneshiro: Toward an Objective Neurophysiological Measure of Musical Engagement https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/dissertation-defense-blair-kaneshiro-toward-objective-neurophysiological-measure-of-musical-e <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, 05/11/2016 - <span class="date-display-start">12:00pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">2:00pm</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> <br /> Engaging listeners is an inherent goal of music.
