Christina M. Vanden Bosch der Nederlanden on Weighing acoustic factors in music and language during development

CCRMA-Stanford University - Thu, 11/16/2017 - 23:17
Date:  Fri, 12/01/2017 - 10:30am - 12:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar When you listen to the radio, it usually is not too hard to figure out whether you’re hearing Ed Sheeran sing or speak his new Top 40 hit. Speech and song are both important forms of human communication, and while adults easily tease these two categories apart, the boundaries between speech and song are blurred early in development due to the exaggerated nature of infant-directed speech. In this talk, I’ll cover whether children can differentiate between speech and song, how adults recruit domain-specific knowledge, and whether the acoustic characteristics of song can be used to improve neural processing of language.

James A. (Andy) Moorer: The Future of Technology - Looking Forward by Looking Back

CCRMA-Stanford University - Wed, 11/08/2017 - 00:42
Date:  Mon, 11/27/2017 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom [Knoll 217] Event Type:  Guest Colloquium In 2000, the author published an article entitled "Audio in the New Millennium", using the author's experience to project 20 years into the future. Today we are 17 years into that projection. Comparisons of the state of the art with the projections lead to some startling observations with profound implications for the future of the relation between humans and technology. For instance, it is not hard to see that audio is the most powerful and critical medium today - more ubiquitous than even television. It was thought originally that television would entirely replace radio, but now we rely on radio to talk to our friends and stream our music, relegating television to the home or perhaps the sports bar.

Weighing acoustic factors in music and language during development

CCRMA-Stanford University - Sat, 11/04/2017 - 00:20
Date:  Fri, 12/01/2017 - 10:30am - 12:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar Christina M. Vanden Bosch der Nederlanden will be talking about the differences between speech and music when we develop our auditory brains. They seem pretty different to us now, but how do our young brains parse the cachophony of sounds and decide that some sounds are meant to be recognized as words, and other sounds are just to make us feel good.  Or are they both?

Who: Christina M. Vanden Bosch der Nederlanden
What: Weighing acoustic factors in music and language during development
When: 10:30AM on Friday December 1, 2017
Where: CCRMA Seminar Room, top floor of the Knoll at Stanford
Why: How do we learn the meaning (or not) of sounds??

Karya, a new sequencer, notation, and language

CCRMA-Stanford University - Mon, 10/30/2017 - 01:02
Date:  Fri, 11/17/2017 - 5:00pm - 6:20pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom [Knoll 217] Event Type:  Guest Colloquium

Abstract: Karya is a music sequencer. Its main goal is to let you write a high level score which is then realized to expressive and idiomatic instrumental parts, primarily for computer realization. It uses its own score format. One way to look at it is a 2D language for expressing music along with an editor for that language. The score language has a built-in library of notation and has basic means for defining new notation, but more complicated notation is defined in Haskell. The idea is to have a standard library, but also be able to define notation specific to your score. The editor is graphical but also uses a Haskell REPL for configuration, automation, and extension.
