Research at CCRMA

From September 1996 to May 1997, I've been Visiting Scholar at CCRMA (Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics, Stanford University, USA), with Julius Smith as supervisor.

I've been mainly doing some models for non-linear phenomena in musical instruments, for instance wave shocks that occur in brass instruments (like trumpet or trombone) played at high level. Another example would be a better understanding of the interaction between the acoustic field and jet oscillations in recorder-like instruments. Such models could be used in a physical modeling of these instruments.

This work was made in cooperation with Marc-Pierre Verge, from IRCAM (Paris, France), and sponsored by the Ecole Normale Superieure (Paris, France).
