Generating truly random &quot;music&quot; is easy, but what does it take to make it interesting?&nbsp; Gareth Loy is a CCRMA alumni, coming back to talk about this topic.&nbsp; With the great combination of perception and computer folks near CCRMA, I expect this will be a vigorous discussion.<br /> <br /> Who:&nbsp; Gareth Loy<br /> When: Friday October 20 at 10:30AM<br /> What:&nbsp;What does music do that engages and holds our interest?<br /> Where: CCRMA Seminar Room (come early to get a place at the table)<br /> Why: Because music perception and computers are fun!<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/gareth-loy-what-does-music-do-engages-and-holds-our-interest" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 06 Oct 2017 20:41:27 +0000 malcolm 4528 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Transitions 2017 - Read More for RSVP Details https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/transitions-2017-read-more-rsvp-details <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, 10/04/2017 - <span class="date-display-start">7:30pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">8:45pm</span></span> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <div class="field-label-inline"> Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Wed, 10/04/2017 - <span class="date-display-start">9:00pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">10:15pm</span></span> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline"> Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Thu, 10/05/2017 - <span class="date-display-start">7:30pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">8:45pm</span></span> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <div class="field-label-inline"> Date:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Thu, 10/05/2017 - <span class="date-display-start">9:00pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">10:15pm</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/speaker_higher_res_0.png?1504637994" /> </div> </div> </div> Please join us for our annual Transitions concerts on Wednesday and Thursday October 4th and 5th.

This one-day symposium brings together academic and industry researchers in music, neuroscience, cognitive science, and engineering, with the aim of broadening discussions and advancing research on musical engagement. Speakers include Jacek Dmochowski (City College of New York), Douglas Eck (Google), Blair Kaneshiro (Stanford University), and Sageev Oore (Saint Mary's University (Canada)/Google). Talks will be followed by a poster session featuring current CCRMA research.

In one hour, the CD condenses 24 hours of sounds of the Bosavi rainforest and its Kaluli inhabitants in central Papua New Guinea. The CD reached multiple audiences concerned with interspecies art, experimental field recording, acoustic ecology, and cultural survival, and is still in circulation through Smithsonian Folkways. Over the last year and a half Feld has worked with Dennis Leonard at Skywalker Sound to recreate Voices of the Rainforest in the 7.1 cinema surround format, for acousmatic concerts, as well as indoor/outdoor museum and gallery installations.<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/steven-feld-voices-of-rainforest" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 24 May 2017 17:34:40 +0000 kermit 4476 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Reading Lee Todd Lacks https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/reading-lee-todd-lacks <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">Tue, 05/30/2017 - <span class="date-display-start">7:30pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">8:30pm</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 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/cobasica/reading_lee_todd_lacks_copy.jpg?1494872114" /> </div> </div> </div> <div><strong>Reading Lee Todd Lacks</strong> is an interdisciplinary performance for 35 blindfolded audience members.</div><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/reading-lee-todd-lacks" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 13 Mar 2017 22:39:00 +0000 cobasica 4431 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu
