Final Project Presentations

The 220b Final presentations will take a concert format on Thursday evening, March 18 at 7:00 PM in the CCRMA stage.

Rehearsals will be held all day Wednesday and Thursday in 30 min. slots for each group or individual presenting.

Additionally, at 5:00 PM on Thursday, a tech run-through will be held to set the final changes for each piece.

Each group is required to sign up for a 30 min rehearsal slot as well as come to the Tech run-through to make sure all final settings are correct. If you cannot make the final Tech run through due to a final exam conflict, make sure you contact Ge and Rob before Thursday.

Please sign up for a slot below:

Thursday 3/18:


  • N: Jacob Wittenberg
  • D: Man v. Machine: Jazz Piano (interpretive) with a MIDI keyboard that controls bass lines and drumbeats and other sounds. Additionally, chucK code randomly shoots out bleeps and bloops. Basically, the point is to take something relatively tonal and set it slightly offphase (you may notice slight non-syncing noises with the bass and beats, etc.). This is intentional, as it's supposed to illustrate the imperfections and differences between human and machine noises.
  • E: my laptop, a midi-USB controller keyboard, and a Grand Piano
