One of the greatest advantages of being at Stanford is the opportunity
to study and work at CCRMA,
our fantastic computer music laboratory!
Some classes I've taken here:
- Music 220. In the bad old days, we had to write lisp code to
do synthesis in
Music 220b. My final project
was a simulation of a Baroque recorder
written in the dreadful Common Lisp Music
- Music 192. For my Music 192c final project, I recorded, mixed and mastered
an album of a cappella music. This was a tremendous learning experience.
- Music 320. Very rarely (at Stanford, at least) do you see
explanation of Fourier transforms which makes sense.
- Music 420-421. Julius Smith's
mind-bending Music 421 class, which
deals with the physics of musical instruments, and digital simulations
thereof. I'm still interested in any advice on musical acoustics,
particularly recommendations of good texts!
