I was a MA/MST student at Stanford's Center for Computer Research in Music and Accoustics.

This is my weblog.

The second week is off to a good start.

At the colloquium tonight the incoming Masters and Doctoral candidates
got a chance to give short presentations about their past and current
work.  Some people on the list were not present.  I was excited by the
presentations by my fellow MA/MST students.  We all have different
experiences and goals and I think it will be fun working with them the
rest of the year.

I gave a brief overview of my experience with computers and music and
played a short piece I wrote a couple years ago.  Some people told me
afterwards that they really liked it.  Some other people didn't seem
to like it so much, but I think that's to be expected.  Maybe someday
I'll write something with universal appeal.  In any case, it was the
largest audience I've played one of my computer-based compositions for
so I had a good time.

I'm expecting the pace to pick up significantly in the next couple of
weeks.  I'm going to try my best to stay on top of things.
