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

This is my weblog.

We went up to Geyserville, California to hear Pauline Oliveros' Tower
Ring.  It was an all-acoustic piece performed in a large silo which
was constructed as a piece of art.  The silo was hollow inside and had
a double-helix of staircases, and performers and audience members
stood on the staircases.  It was pretty awesome.  CCRMA's director Chris Chafe
and Doctoral student John Granzow were two of the performers, and
bowed a long wire that ran the vertical length of the silo.  The
audience was also part of the performance, ringing bells and singing
at the end.  I had a lot of fun.

222 final presentations were yesterday.  I've posted a stereo version
of my piece on the music page.  I'll post the 220c piece once I get a
chance to make a good recording of it.  I've turned in my work for
420a, so all that remains for me this term is to finish the 424 final
and my final project in that course.

It has been an extremely rewarding year for me here at CCRMA.
