Date:  Fri, 01/19/2018 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm Location:  CCRMA Stage Event Type:  Concert The JACK quartet present a concert of works by Stanford Graduate Composers and Faculty on the CCRMA stage. The program includes pieces by Constantin Basica, Julie Herndon, Jessie Marino, Charlie Sdraulig, Davor Branimir Vincze, Nick Virzi, and Mark Applebaum.

Deemed "superheroes of the new music world" (Boston Globe), the JACK Quartet is "the go-to quartet for contemporary music, tying impeccable musicianship to intellectual ferocity and a take-no-prisoners sense of commitment." (Washington Post) "They are a musical vehicle of choice to the next great composers who walk among us." (Toronto Star)

Elisabetta Chicca on spike-based learning

CCRMA-Stanford University - Sat, 12/02/2017 - 07:54
Date:  Thu, 12/07/2017 - 5:00pm - 5:50pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar Spike...Spike.....Spike..Spike........Spike.  That's how the brain communicates. But how do you spikes help you learn? And more importantly, how do you modify a spiking network to learn new things (like speech and music)? The colloquial rule is "those who fire together, wire together" but in practice you need causality. A more realistic learning model is called spike-timing-dependent plasticity, where a particular neural connection is strengthened when an input spike immediately precedes the output spike. An input spike must happen before the output.  This is the backprop, for those of you from the machine-learning or DNN world, of the real neural world.

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.
