She will be in residence at Stanford/CCRMA for several weeks beginning mid-April presenting lectures as part of the Music222 course, public talks, graduate master classes, and presenting a concert of her 3D sound works on Saturday April 22nd with CCRMA&rsquo;s GRAIL (Giant Radial Array for Immersive Listening)&nbsp;multichannel system, which will be installed in the Braun Rehearsal Hall for the duration of the quarter.

Paris will be at CCRMA this coming Friday to talk about algorithms for processing that are algorithmically and physically efficient. Think about speech and audio processing algorithms that you might want to run continuously on a cell phone (with an all-too-small battery.) How do you design algorithms that process speech and audio, and do it in a way that is mindful of real-world constraints. It was a good and fun talk.<br /> <br /> Paris has done many interesting and creative kinds of audio processing. And now he is thinking about what algorithms make sense in the real world, where time and energy matter. <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/paris-smaragdis-striving-computational-and-physical-efficiency-in-audio-processing" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Thu, 13 Apr 2017 00:21:57 +0000 malcolm 4454 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Bass2Bass - Michelle Lou and Scott Worthington https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/bass2bass-michelle-lou-and-scott-worthington <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, 04/20/2017 - <span class="date-display-start">7:30pm</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="113" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/ecallery/bass2bass.png?1491180413" /> </div> </div> </div> Bass2Bass is a five string&nbsp;electric bass duo comprised of SoCal bassist/composers Scott Worthington and Michelle Lou. Seeing a dearth in new music written for the instrument, the duo decided to form in 2016 and commission new pieces that feature the expressive range of the electric bass in contemporary music.

ALYSIA is a machine-learning system that learns the relationship between melodies and lyrics, and uses the resulting model to create new songs in the style of the corpus. While ALYSIA creates melodies for user-provided lyrics, another system, MABLE, creates computer generated lyrics that convey a coherent story. In addition to discussing both systems, an original song co-created by ALYSIA and music professor Joshua Palkki will be performed.<br /> Joint work with David Loker, Chris Cassion, Rafael Perez y Perez, and Divya Singh.</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/margareta-ackerman-algorithmic-songwriting" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 27 Feb 2017 21:51:06 +0000 blairbo 4424 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu How to Mash Up Music: Lecture, Demo, and Workshop https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/how-mash-music-lecture-demo-and-workshop <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, 04/12/2017 - <span class="date-display-start">1:00pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">4:00pm</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> <h2>How to Mash Up Music: Lecture, Demo and Workshop by Paul D.
