The Arditti, Asasello, and Brentano quartets have performed his works, along with the Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, London Sinfonietta, and the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra. Some of his compositions, such as the string quartet &ldquo;Tran(slate)&rdquo; which won the 2008 Staubach Preis in Darmstadt and premiered by the Arditti Quartet, include live electronics. His &ldquo;Vocalise 2,&rdquo; for two vocalizing amplified saxophonists, was performed in Paris in February 2016 as well as &ldquo;Fringes,&rdquo; a large-scale work for 22 instrumentalists. Lara&rsquo;s music has also been presented at many festivals all over the United States, South America, and Europe.</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/composition-forum-with-felipe-lara" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 20 May 2022 22:04:56 +0000 jarek 5971 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Transformers for Applications in Audio, Speech and Music: From Language Modeling to Understanding to Synthesis https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/transformers-applications-in-audio-speech-and-music-language-modeling-understanding-synthesis <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, 05/19/2022 - <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 [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> <strong>Abstract:&nbsp;</strong>Transformers have touched many fields of research and music/audio is no different. This talk will present 3 of my papers as case studies on how we can leverage the power of Transformers in representation learning, signal processing, and clustering. First, we discuss how we're able to beat the wildly popular WaveNet architecture, proposed by Google-DeepMind for raw audio synthesis. We also show how we overcame the quadratic constraint of the Transformers by conditioning on context. Secondly, a version of Audio Transformers for large-scale audio understanding, inspired by viT, operating on raw waveforms, is presented.<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"> For CCRMA Users Only </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/transformers-applications-in-audio-speech-and-music-language-modeling-understanding-synthesis" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sun, 15 May 2022 23:31:11 +0000 jos 5969 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Lazare Lubek https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/lazare-lubek <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">Mon, 05/16/2022 -
