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 language.
- Music 192. For my Music 192c final project, I recorded, mixed and mastered
a cappella compact disc. This was a tremendous learning experience.
It also bankrupted me and
earned me the enmity of a certain unnamed music graduate
- Music 320. Very rarely (at Stanford, at least) do you see
explanation of Fourier transforms which makes sense.
- Music 420-421. I am currently struggling with Julius Smith's
mind-bending Music 421 class, which
deals with the physics of musical instruments, and digital simulations
thereof. Any advice you can provide me on musical acoustics would
be much appreciated, particularly recommendations of good texts!
