John Woodruff on Machine Listening: What do they hear and why?

CCRMA-Stanford University - Sat, 04/04/2015 - 14:20
Date:  Fri, 04/10/2015 - 11:30am - 12:45pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room (Top Floor of the Knoll) Event Type:  Hearing Seminar Whenever our devices capture sound, audio systems are there to recognize what’s been said or turn down all that noise. But how do our phones, tablets, remotes, headphones, hearing aids and thermostats know what to listen to? Most systems use one or both of two assumptions – 1) I’m listening for speech, 2) the sound I want came from that direction. Robust speech recognition systems are perhaps the most ubiquitous realizations of the first assumption. Large-scale training on noisy speech embeds the capability to “listen for speech”, but such systems are fundamentally limited when there are competing talkers. FREE Open to the Public

François-Xavier Féron - Retracing the impact of musical acoustics on Gérard Grisey’s creative process in the 1970s: from spectral models to spectrogram transcriptions

CCRMA-Stanford University - Thu, 04/02/2015 - 17:00
Date:  Wed, 05/27/2015 - 5:15pm - 6:30pm Location:  Classroom Event Type:  Guest Colloquium

From its emergence in France at the beginning of the 1970s, spectral music has represented one of the main musical streams. Composed by Gérard Grisey over a decade, from 1974 to 1985, the six-piece cycle Les espaces acoustiques illustrates a new approach towards composition, one that deals with acoustic properties and is constantly preoccupied with the modalities of auditory perception. This cycle is based on a harmonic spectrum with fundamental frequency 41,2 Hz (E1). Grisey also collaborated with the acoustician Michèle Castellengo, with whom he analysed instrumental sounds spectrograms in order to compose "synthetic spectra" and "spectral polyphony".

The Lightbulb Ensemble

CCRMA-Stanford University - Wed, 04/01/2015 - 23:16
Date:  Tue, 04/14/2015 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm Location: 

CCRMA STAGE

Event Type:  Concert The Lightbulb Ensemble (LBE) is a composer collective that champions experimental music, instrument building, and contdmpoary gamelan. The ensemble emerged from the culture of new music at Mills College (several players are Mills graduate) and the longstanding cross-cultural artistic exchange of Gamelan Sekar Jaya. LBE performs on steel metallophones, wooden marimbas, and other musical instruments designed, tuned, and built by Brian Baumbusch, the ensemble's founder and director. LBE is cross-cultural in a musical sense as well: the ensemble utilizes techniques, textures, and concepts that fuse - and at times contrast with - Balinese and Western new-music community, including the Paul Dresher Ensemble, The Jack Quartet, and The Center for Contemporary Music.

When: Thursday 30 April 5.30pm - 7.00pm    Where: Co-working space at The Innovation CentreBook: EventbriteWhat is audiosplitter?Audiosplitter is the place to discover great music with people who love it most. Through audiosplitter you can curate an online music collection, connect with music lovers and discover great music. Audiosplitter was founded by three Londoners working in the electronic music industry.audiosplitter.fm was built because they couldn’t find an existing music platform that had the quantity of the music they wanted to listen to or an easy way of finding more of it.They realised they were looking for something that felt like a local record store. With their huge but cleverly curated collection of music and the amazing knowledge of the people who spend time in record stores they had the perfect idea for what they wanted audiosplitter to feel like.About the eventIn this talk Will, Adam and James talk about their journey so far and give the audience the opportunity to help test their product.There will be time for networking before the event closes at 7pm.Book online For all enquiries please contact us.

Hans Tutschku: Connection of Gesture and Space

CCRMA-Stanford University - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 23:52
Date:  Wed, 04/08/2015 - 5:15pm - 7:00pm Location:  The Stage Event Type:  Guest Colloquium

The physical gesture of instrumentalists and dancers has been of great interest to me over the past 25 years. My musical education on the piano and later with live-electronics taught me aspects of music-making long before I thought to compose. Any music I have written, be it for instruments, singers or electronic sources, is searching for the expression of gestural phrasing, relationships between cause and effect (and their negation) and a plausibility carried over from our experiences outside of music.

Naomi Harte - ViSQOL, An objective measure for speech quality

CCRMA-Stanford University - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 02:09
Date:  Fri, 05/01/2015 - 11:30am - 1:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room (Top Floor of the Knoll) Event Type:  Hearing Seminar How do humans judge perceptual quality of a signal? It’s easy to measure mean-squared error, but that is not how the brain measures quality—that would be too easy. Instead, we want to look inside the brain to see how sound is encoded. This problem is important as we build more devices that process sound and we need to assess whether they are doing a good job. Naomi’s work addresses the problem when we have access to the original and the modified sound. It’s an improvement over the PESQ and POLQA work, if you are familiar with the area.
