Gareth Loy on What does music do that engages and holds our interest?

Fri, 10/06/2017 - 21:41
Date:  Fri, 10/20/2017 - 10:30am - 12:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar With all the new interest in computer generated music (e.g. Project Magenta) it is good to revisit the issue of what makes music intereting. Generating truly random "music" is easy, but what does it take to make it interesting?  Gareth Loy is a CCRMA alumni, coming back to talk about this topic.  With the great combination of perception and computer folks near CCRMA, I expect this will be a vigorous discussion.

Who:  Gareth Loy
When: Friday October 20 at 10:30AM
What: What does music do that engages and holds our interest?
Where: CCRMA Seminar Room (come early to get a place at the table)
Why: Because music perception and computers are fun!

The four members of San Francisco's Collision Stories came together after having encountered each other over a number of years, crossing paths here and there as they wove their strands through the experimental, psychedelic, improvisational, electronics, and avant-garde scenes. Once they finally gathered and spent an evening engrossed in collective sound-making it was evident that their diverse backgrounds coalesced into something unique and intriguing.
