The Table Turns

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Thu, 10/27/2016 - 15:35

Karen Eide Bøen and Roar Sletteland have created a dance performance for four turntables and a dancer, where they examine the relationship between body, sound, turntables and room. The Table Turns is about freedom and power on the dance floor. It’s about LPs, stored movement, solidified vibrations and sound that revived matter.

I Table Turns er danseren utstyrt med bevegelsessensorer og kontrollerer platespillerne ved hjelp av disse. Platespillerne er modifisert slik at hastigheten kan justeres trinnløst i begge retninger, og stiften flyttes mekanisk til ulike steder på platen. Utviklingen av systemet har foregått på BEK.

Danseren danser og spiller på en gang, noe som skaper en situasjon der musikken er resultat av bevegelsene. Paradoksalt nok medfører denne kontrollen et tap av frihet, en radikal innsnevring av bevegelses-mulighetene. Siden danseren er avhengig av å danse frem det hun skal danse til, vil dans og musikk skape og motarbeide hverandre i samme bevegelse. Ved å snu forbindelsen mellom lyd og bevegelse stiller forestillingen spørsmål om forholdet mellom individ og fellesskap, om maktforholdet mellom dans og musikk, og spenningen mellom dans som kunstform og dans som sosial aktivitet.

"Phonos, 40 year of electronic music in Barcelona" - digital catalog

Phonos project - UPF - Fri, 10/21/2016 - 14:39

"Phonos 40 years of electronic music in Barcelona" is the title of the exhibition that took place at the Museu de la Música in Barcelona between December 2014 and September 2015 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Phonos Foundation.
 

The exhibition offered an overview of the history of Phonos through a range of electronic devices created or used by this entity, discovering people and music that helped to write the history of electronic music in Barcelona.
 

The material that was part of this exhibition is now collected in the following as a digital catalog of the exhibition that includes text, images and videos:

Digital Modeling of Expressive Acoustic Instruments

CCRMA-Stanford University - Fri, 10/14/2016 - 19:56
Date:  Thu, 01/26/2017 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm Location:  CCRMA Class Room [Knoll 217] Event Type:  DSP Seminar Abstract: The increasing demand of expressive virtual instruments has led the research and development of powerful and sophisticated technologies. While samplers and synthesizers have been for decades the cornerstones of virtual music, it’s nevertheless true that limitations of both techniques are well known. The purpose of our research is to find a way to overcome these constraints exploring both the Physical Modeling and the Sample Modeling approach. We have performed an in-depth study of the Physical Modeling techniques, especially the Digital Waveguides Synthesis by Prof. Julius O. Smith. FREE Open to the Public

Deep Learning for Audio Applications using TensorFlow

CCRMA-Stanford University - Fri, 10/14/2016 - 19:08
Date:  Thu, 10/27/2016 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm Location:  CCRMA Class Room [Knoll 217[ Event Type:  DSP Seminar Abstract: Deep learning has become an essential part of audio analysis right from information retrieval to synthesis. The tutorial will cover most of the fundamental aspects of training and debugging neural networks. I will go through various tips and tricks of how to approach a problem, what kind of architectures, loss functions to use, how to set-up experiments for audio classification. At the end of the session, students should be able to run and implement some state of the art algorithms in Tensorflow by themselves. Basic programming efficiency is required. It will also cover why and how do they work. Finally we will also explain some of the techniques of decoding why they work and what do these network learn for various audio applications.
