In comparison to conventional acoustic hearing aids whose output is greatly reduced above 4-5 kHz, this approach is designed to provide output levels of up to about 120 dB SPL and functional gain of up to 40 dB for frequencies up to 10 kHz.<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/sunil-puria-developing-and-testing-photonic-contact-hearing-aid" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/sunil-puria-developing-and-testing-photonic-contact-hearing-aid#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3937 Fri, 10 Apr 2015 16:25:25 +0000 malcolm 3937 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Music <541> Presents: Pablo Gómez Cano, guitar; Scott Worthington, double bass; and Dustin Donahue, percussion https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/music-presents-pablo-g-mez-cano-guitar-scott-worthington-double-bass-and-dustin-donahue-percu <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, 04/16/2015 -

The ensemble emerged from the culture of new music at Mills College (several players are Mills graduate) and the longstanding cross-cultural artistic exchange of Gamelan Sekar Jaya.</h3> <h3>LBE performs on steel metallophones, wooden marimbas, and other musical instruments designed, tuned, and built by Brian Baumbusch, the ensemble's founder and director. LBE is cross-cultural in a musical sense as well: the ensemble utilizes techniques, textures, and concepts that fuse - and at times contrast with - Balinese and Western new-music community, including the Paul Dresher Ensemble, The Jack Quartet, and The Center for Contemporary Music.</h3><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/lightbulb-ensemble" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/lightbulb-ensemble#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3903 Wed, 01 Apr 2015 22:16:51 +0000 ecallery 3903 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Guest Lecture: Brian Baumbusch https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/guest-lecture-brian-baumbusch <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, 04/14/2015 - <span class="date-display-start">5:15pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">6:15pm</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> Guest Lecture </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="111" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/mhuberth/interlocking.jpg?1428595544" /> </div> </div> </div> Please join us for a pre-concert presentation, centering around the acoustical, mathematical, and compositional principles involved in the formation of &quot;The Lightbulb Ensemble.&quot; Brian will discuss the acoustical approach behind the building and tuning of the metallophone instruments that inspired the formation of the group. These steel &quot;gamelan&quot; instruments were built in collaboration with American sculptor Bernie Hosey, and are based on a five tone scale evocative of the Indonesian pelog scale, but are tailored to be self generative in that the tuning of each key is extracted from an overtone from a lower pitched key.<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/guest-lecture-brian-baumbusch" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/guest-lecture-brian-baumbusch#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3934 Thu, 09 Apr 2015 16:05:44 +0000 mhuberth 3934 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Weston Olencki - New Music For Trombone and Trombone with Electronics https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/weston-olencki-new-music-trombone-and-trombone-with-electronics <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, 04/11/2015 - <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="133" height="200" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/ecallery/_3mo4888.jpg?1428348425" /> </div> </div> </div> SF-based Weston Olencki presents a program of boundary-pushing and radical works for trombone, which explore sound, acoustics, and perception as objective and/or tactile phenomena.

But how do our phones, tablets, remotes, headphones, hearing aids and thermostats know what to listen to? Most systems use one or both of two assumptions &ndash; 1) I&rsquo;m listening for speech, 2) the sound I want came from that direction. Robust speech recognition systems are perhaps the most ubiquitous realizations of the first assumption. Large-scale training on noisy speech embeds the capability to &ldquo;listen for speech&rdquo;, but such systems are fundamentally limited when there are competing talkers.<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/john-woodruff-machine-listening-what-do-they-hear-and-why" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/john-woodruff-machine-listening-what-do-they-hear-and-why#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3917 Sat, 04 Apr 2015 13:20:41 +0000 malcolm 3917 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Hans Tutschku: Connection of Gesture and Space https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/hans-tutschku-connection-of-gesture-and-space <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, 04/08/2015 - <span class="date-display-start">5:15pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">7:00pm</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> The 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 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="200" height="180" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/nando/2013-09-10-tutschku_by_tonyrinaldo_0.jpg?1427496569" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>The physical gesture of instrumentalists and dancers has been of great interest to me over the past 25 years. My musical education on the piano and later with live-electronics taught me aspects of music-making long before I thought to compose. Any music I have written, be it for instruments, singers or electronic sources, is searching for the expression of gestural phrasing, relationships between&nbsp;cause and effect (and their negation) and a plausibility carried over from our experiences outside of music.</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/hans-tutschku-connection-of-gesture-and-space" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/hans-tutschku-connection-of-gesture-and-space#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3900 Fri, 27 Mar 2015 22:52:36 +0000 nando 3900 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu
