CCRMA Summer Workshop

Michael Grevich

CCRMA @ Singapore Workshops 2007

A researcher, composer, performer and interaction designer, Michael Gurevich is currently a postdoctoral research scholar and lecturer at Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), where he also received his Ph.D. and M.A, studying with Jonathan Berger, Julius Smith and Chris Chafe. His research and teaching focus is interaction design for music, examining the new modes and paradigms of creating, playing and listening to music that are emerging from the intersection of technology, science and art. A second active research interest in computational acoustic modeling of whale and dolphin vocalizations was the subject of his recent doctoral dissertation. His research has been presented at numerous international conferences, including CHI, ICMC, NIME and DAFx. Together with Stephan von Muehlen, he created the Accordiatron, a controller for interactive music. A member of [sic]—the Stanford Improvisation Collective, Michael remains active as a saxophone player and composer of interactive, chamber and tape music, and creator of interactive art installations. Prior to his recent return to Stanford, Michael spent 2005-2006, as a research scientist at the Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R), a member of Singapore's A*STAR family of leading R&D institutions. In I2R's Sound & Interactivity group lab, he focused on bringing interactive media experiences to everyday users, researching audio synthesis technology, collaborative and distributed interactions over networks, and music applications for mobile phones. Michael has been involved with CCRMA's Physical Interaction Design summer workshop since its inception in 2002. He received a B. Mus. in Music Technology from McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
