This talk will discuss the role of internal sound and self-referent external sound in relation to proprioceptive processes, or the sense of oneself in physical space.&nbsp; Sound compositions may have the capacity to change proprioceptive mappings through inducing otherwise unknowable quasi-spatial experience. We will speculate on possible reasons why it may be so. How is it that certain kinds of sound patterns can cause a deviation from what is otherwise normalized expectations of events in time.<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-julia-litman-cleper-sound-mappings-inhabiting-virtual-geometry-through-sound" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/guest-lecture-julia-litman-cleper-sound-mappings-inhabiting-virtual-geometry-through-sound#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3929 Wed, 08 Apr 2015 17:48:17 +0000 mhuberth 3929 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu Recent progress in efficient physics-based synthesis of string instrument sound https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/recent-progress-in-efficient-physics-based-synthesis-of-string-instrument-sound <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, 04/23/2015 - <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> 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> <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="153" height="200" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/nando/estebanmaestre.png?1428986841" /> </div> </div> </div> <b><br /> ABSTRACT<br /> <br /> </b>Applications combining digital waveguides, modal synthesis, and finite-difference time-domain modeling will be presented in the context of efficient simulation of string instruments.<br /> <br /> The first part of this talk will introduce a technique for modeling bridge admittances and body radiativity profiles from frequency response measurements on guitars and bowed string instruments.

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 Internal Research Colloquium: Ge Wang, Blair Kaneshiro, Hyung-Suk Kim https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/internal-research-colloquium-ge-wang-blair-kaneshiro-hyung-suk-kim <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, 04/15/2015 - <span class="date-display-start">5:15pm</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">6:45pm</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 (Room 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> Internal 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="133" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/mhuberth/normal-eeg-coma-alpha1.jpg?1428595362" /> </div> </div> </div> Please join us for three talks from our own CCRMA students and faculty!<br /> <ul> <li>Speaker 1: Ge Wang - Game Design for Expressive Mobile Music</li> <li>Speaker 2: Blair Kaneshiro - Representation of acoustical and musical features in ongoing EEG</li> <li>Speaker 3: Hyung-Suk Kim - An Introduction to Sound Textures</li> </ul> <u><strong>Abstracts</strong></u><br /> <br /> <strong>Ge Wang - Game Design for Expressive Mobile Music</strong><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/internal-research-colloquium-ge-wang-blair-kaneshiro-hyung-suk-kim" target="_blank">read more</a></p> https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/internal-research-colloquium-ge-wang-blair-kaneshiro-hyung-suk-kim#comments https://ccrma.stanford.edu/crss/node/3932 Thu, 09 Apr 2015 16:02:42 +0000 mhuberth 3932 at https://ccrma.stanford.edu The Lightbulb Ensemble https://ccrma.stanford.edu/events/lightbulb-ensemble <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">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> <p>CCRMA STAGE</p> </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="111" alt="" src="https://ccrma.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/user/ecallery/interlocking.jpg?1427926504" /> </div> </div> </div> <h3>The Lightbulb Ensemble (LBE) is a composer collective that champions experimental music, instrument building, and contdmpoary gamelan.

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
