Matt and John have carried on with recent duo performances in the Bay Area and New York. Together they develop a number of musical programs and interfaces for Matt that provide certain limits and affordances for their improvisatory explorations. These include pre-recorded samples of John playing, as well as programs that listen to John's live guitar and respond, and programs that allow Matt to improvise harmonically, melodically, and rhythmically. The music can range from abstract, contemplative, thrashing, grooving, not grooving, bluesy, Viennese, and downright insane. <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/john-schott-electric-guitar-matthew-wright-digital-sound" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Mon, 21 May 2018 06:17:37 +0000 ecallery 4679 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Noah Fram on Detecting Musical Surprisal https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/noah-fram-detecting-musical-surprisal <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">Fri, 06/01/2018 - <span class="date-display-start">10:30am</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">12:00pm</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 Seminar Room </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> Hearing Seminar </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/malcolm/fram_344x344.jpg?1527461546" /> </div> </div> </div> What can be better than surprises and music?&nbsp; Are you surprised?&nbsp; What are the neural implications of surprise?<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/noah-fram-detecting-musical-surprisal" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sun, 27 May 2018 22:51:12 +0000 malcolm 4682 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Tender Buttons - Helen Newby and Daniel King https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/tender-buttons-helen-newby-and-daniel-king <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, 05/31/2018 - <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="150" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/ecallery/img_0032.jpg?1527200893" /> </div> </div> </div> Tender Buttons is cellist Helen Newby, percussionist Dan King, and various devices/electronics.

New York is home to a vibrant instrumental New Music scene, with a relative paucity of vocal music. Ekmeles was founded to fill the gap by presenting new a cappella repertoire for solo voices, and by collaborating with these instrumental ensembles.

She explores the boundaries between written music, improvisation, electronics, real-time computer-based interactivity, and visual media. Storytelling, memories, and nature play an important role in Akiko's work, and she most often finds beauty in simplicity.  Akiko's practice focuses on realizing her ideas of relations between the body and mind into intermedia composition, often in conjunction with building customized instruments/interfaces. It is a form of nonverbal communication with her inner self and with the environment, including the audience. By somatically actuating perceptions with sound, light, and haptic objects, her ideas of relations between the body and mind become embraceable.<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/akiko-hatakeyama" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Sat, 17 Mar 2018 22:17:26 +0000 ecallery 4652 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu
