François Germain: Towards practical source-independent algorithms using nonnegative matrix factorization

CCRMA-Stanford University - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 18:28
Date:  Wed, 04/23/2014 - 5:15pm - 7:00pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom, The Knoll 2nd floor, Rm 217 Event Type:  Colloquium Limitations of nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF) were recently circumvented through the development of "universal source models" which exploit the similarities inside a given class of sources in order to eliminate the need for user-provided training data. The resulting system is unsupervised from the user perspective which strongly improves its range of practical use. This method was applied to applications such as offline speech enhancement, voice activity detection and singing voice separation.

FRI Secondary School Students Show a Huge Interest in Computer and Information Science Studies at FRI

FRI - News and Events - Mon, 04/14/2014 - 23:00

Computer and Information Science at FRI is becoming more and more promising, interesting and important, judging by the high number of applications we received. Even though the number of secondary school students enrolling into universities is declining, 604 applicants registered FRI 1st cycle study programmes as their first choice, whereas FRI only has 390 available places.

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 11:07

BEK supports several works in the MA 2014 exhibition. The movie The Perpetual Progeny by Anders Elsrud Hultgren was commissioned by BEK for Screen City 2013. The multichannel sound installation by Ellen Øyen Vister based on field recordings from Røst is part of Radio Hopes and Dreams – Lab For Ecological Transition. Max/Jamoma is used for mixing and playback. BEK has also supervised the making of the perfomance installation Pulse Sequence by Georgia Rodger.

The MA Degree Show in Fine Art 2014 takes place at Bergen Kunsthall from 11 Aapril to 4 May. The title is “MEAGHEA SKKLL RKGM MAH TNCA”.

This year the MA Degree Show in Fine Art at Bergen Kunsthall presents the work of 23 artists entering the final stages of the two-year study programme at Bergen Academy of Art and Design.

The work exhibited encompasses a wide range of artistic practice including painting, sculpture, film, animation, photography, installation, sound and performance.

This exhibition may be understood as a collective portrait of a group of emerging artists who have spent a crucial period of their development in each other’s company.

These graduates come from diverse professional backgrounds, cultures, and different experiences. This exhibition provides a glimpse into the practice of these twenty-three artists at a pivotal point in their careers.

Alternative Guided Tours
The exhibitors have decided to invite the visitors to the MA Degree Show to engage in discussions about their work by offering a series of alternative guided tours and public events throughout the duration of the Degree Show.

The candidates will be inviting professionals and specialists from diverse fields to give guided tours based on their interpretation of the works through their own specialist area of knowledge.

Evighetens avkom

EVIGHETENS AVKOM er en skildring av to parallelle landskap – En skikkelses rundgang gjennom et landskap hinsides naturen: I et landskap liggende parallellt med det synelige.

Margrethe Kolstad Brekke and Elin Øyen Vister
Radio Hopes and Dreams – Lab For Ecological Transistion

Elin Øyen Vister /Child of Klang, (b. 1976), is a Norwegian artist currently completing her MFA at the art academy in Bergen, Norway. She completed the Nordic Sound Art programme in 2012, and has a background in djìng and radio. Since 2010, she has been partly based in the Røst archipelago, the outermost part of Lofoten, Northern Norway.

Øyen Vister is working with field recording, sound installation, multichannel and stereo sound work, performance, live improvisation, sound for film as well as site specific sound interventions. She is occupied with listening as a practice, in ways of composing, sensing and experiencing the world; much inspired by the american philospher and composer Pauline Oliveros Deep Listening practice.

One of her ongoing projects, Soundscape Røst, investigates and documents the rapidly changing natural and cultural sound environments of the Røst archipelago, as a result of the ongoing global environmental crisis and the increasing neo liberal state politics of Norway.

Øyen Vister adresses topics of ecological transistion and the global loss of biodiversity through her artistic practice and takes a queer eco feminist perspective when looking closer into the very often disfunctional nature-culture relation, and human-non human and human-human relations. She is the founder of Røst AIR – an interdisiplinary, ecologogical artist in residency and artist association, founded in 2012, situated on Skomvær island, Røst.

Georgia Rodger
Pulse Sequence

I’ve been working with the idea of performative making; a transformative process where the focus is on the act of making itself. In parallel to the creation of a physical sculpture, I loop and layer sounds to make a cumulative composition, overlaying the first moment with layer upon layer so that these past moments remain present and animated. In this live metamorphosis, body, sound and material come together in time to create a multi-dimensional whole.

José Echeveste: Antescofo, a dynamic language for real-time musician-computer interaction

CCRMA-Stanford University - Tue, 04/08/2014 - 18:13
Date:  Mon, 04/14/2014 - 5:15pm - 6:45pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom, The Knoll 2nd floor, Rm 217 Event Type:  Colloquium   This talk focuses on programing of time and interaction in Antescofo, a real-time system for performance coordination between musicians and computer processes during live music performance. To this end, Antescofo relies on artificial machine listening and a domain specific real-time programing language. It extends each paradigm through strong coupling of the two and strong emphasis on temporal semantics and behavior of the system.

The challenge in bringing human actions in the loop of computing is strongly related to temporal semantics of the language, and timeliness of live execution despite heterogeneous nature of time in the two mediums.
