Sunil Puria on Developing and Testing a Photonic Contact Hearing Aid

CCRMA-Stanford University - Fri, 04/10/2015 - 17:25
Date:  Fri, 04/17/2015 - 11:30am - 1:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room (Top Floor of the Knoll) Event Type:  Hearing Seminar The EarLens Contact Hearing Aid (CHA) is a non-surgical investigational hearing device consisting of two components: a tympanic membrane transducer (TMT), which is a light-activated balanced-armature transducer that drives the middle ear through direct contact with the umbo; and a behind-the-ear unit (BTE) that encodes amplified sound into pulses of light that are emitted via a light source in the ear canal to wirelessly drive and power the TMT. In comparison to conventional acoustic hearing aids whose output is greatly reduced above 4-5 kHz, this approach is designed to provide output levels of up to about 120 dB SPL and functional gain of up to 40 dB for frequencies up to 10 kHz.

Alex Brandmeyer on High-frequency Neural oscillations for Auditory Perception

CCRMA-Stanford University - Thu, 04/09/2015 - 22:31
Date:  Fri, 05/22/2015 - 11:30am - 1:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room (Top Floor of the Knoll) Event Type:  Hearing Seminar Our transparent everyday experience of sound belies the complex perceptual processes which transform acoustic energy in the environment into rich representations of sound-emitting objects. Since the publication of Bregman’s seminal work on ‘Auditory Scene Analysis’, much progress has been made in understanding the neural mechanisms that support the formation of auditory streams and object representations. This talk will focus on the functional role of neural oscillations in audition, and the interplay between top-down (i.e. attentional and executive processes) and bottom-up (sensory) processes during the formation of perceptual representations.

Guest Lecture: Brian Baumbusch

CCRMA-Stanford University - Thu, 04/09/2015 - 17:05
Date:  Tue, 04/14/2015 - 5:15pm - 6:15pm Location:  CCRMA Stage Event Type:  Guest Lecture Please join us for a pre-concert presentation, centering around the acoustical, mathematical, and compositional principles involved in the formation of "The Lightbulb Ensemble." Brian will discuss the acoustical approach behind the building and tuning of the metallophone instruments that inspired the formation of the group. These steel "gamelan" instruments were built in collaboration with American sculptor Bernie Hosey, and are based on a five tone scale evocative of the Indonesian pelog scale, but are tailored to be self generative in that the tuning of each key is extracted from an overtone from a lower pitched key.

Acoustic Source Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks: Model and Numerical Algorithm

CCRMA-Stanford University - Thu, 04/09/2015 - 00:36
Date:  Thu, 04/30/2015 - 5:15pm - 7:00pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom [Knoll 217] Event Type:  DSP Seminar Acoustic Source Localization in Wireless Sensor Networks: Model and Numerical Algorithm

Abstract: Jianhua Yuan will present a series of techniques, based upon the energy based acoustic features, to locate a sound source given measurements of the sound field. For wireless ad hoc sensor network applications, energy based acoustic features is an appropriate choice since the acoustic power emitted by targets, such as moving vehicles usually varies slowly with respect to time. In this approach, mathematical models and new numerical methods may be used to yield higher accuracy in terms of source location estimates compared to the earlier method.

Guest Lecture: Julia Litman-Cleper. Sound Mappings: Inhabiting virtual geometry through sound.

CCRMA-Stanford University - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 18:48
Date:  Thu, 04/23/2015 - 5:15pm - 6:00pm Location:  CCRMA Stage Event Type:  Guest Lecture The experience of hearing one’s own voice “from the outside,” usually through an electronic device, is often at first described as “weird” or “strange” and jarring. This talk will discuss the role of internal sound and self-referent external sound in relation to proprioceptive processes, or the sense of oneself in physical space.  Sound compositions may have the capacity to change proprioceptive mappings through inducing otherwise unknowable quasi-spatial experience. We will speculate on possible reasons why it may be so. How is it that certain kinds of sound patterns can cause a deviation from what is otherwise normalized expectations of events in time.

Material Vision – Silent Reading

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Wed, 04/08/2015 - 15:29

Material Vision – Silent Reading is a film and series of prints by Espen Sommer Eide, based on the creation of new musical instruments and a performance developed on Bear Island. Exhibition opening at Trykkeriet, and filmscreening at Landmark.

At Trykkeriet Espen Sommer Eide will exhibit 6 photogravure prints originally commissioned by KORO / University of Tromsø for the recently opened Faculty of Science and Technology building, in addition to a new installation work. Then at Landmark the accompanying video work will be screened.

The project is supported by BEK.

19th century Norwegian geologist Balthazar Keilhau describes the island as the “Cadaver of the Earth” due to its lack of vegetation and harsh weather conditions. In exploring an unfamiliar landscape, one cannot avoid a certain process of appropriation, whether one is exploring for the purpose of politics, resources, science or art. The explorer’s gaze cannot help but desire to possess and master the object in view. Through a combination of artistic and scientific performances, Material Vision – Silent Reading investigates various ways of reading a landscape and how the viewer and the viewed relate to each other. In this way of seeing certain prerequisites for perception becomes visible and partakes simultaneously in the experience. The role of the instrument in expeditions is another central theme. To investigate this subject the project uses mobile eye-tracking technologies, combined with instruments that give audible feedback to reading the landscapes. Instruments (scientific or not) allow something to be touched more directly by framing and controlling the view. The use of instruments in this way becomes a learning tool where the object itself teaches us the method of how it should be seen.

The evening starts at Trykkeriet, Fjøsangerveien 70A with exhibition and food 6 p.m – 9 p.m. Followed by a premiere film screening at Landmark at 9:30 p.m (doors open 9 p.m). Afterwards there will be music by Are Mokkelbost (Single Unit, Kill) and Mental Overdrive (DJ set by Per Martinsen).

ESPEN SOMMER EIDE (Tromsø, NO, 1972) is a musician and artist based in Bergen. As Alog and Phonophani he is among the most prominent representatives of experimental electronic music from Norway, with a string of releases on the label Rune Grammofon. As an artist Eide works with subjects concerning language, history, science and philosophy, often with sound and music as a central element.

ARE MOKKELBOST is an artist and music maker from Oslo. He played in the musically abrasive and visually violent band KILLL throughout their 10 year existence. This amalgam of metal and electronics is also found in his solo project Single Unit, extended by a nitpicking collage methodology. Before that, he was doing electronic improvisation in the trio ARM and acoustic doomscapes the duo JUV, starting as early as 1996. Today, primarily working as a visual artist, Are Mokkelbost directs his musical energy into experimentation with electronic hardware and synthesisers. At Landmark he will be playing us some tunes made on his two drum machines and synth.

MENTAL OVERDRIVE is the solo project of Norwegian artist Per Martinsen. He has been using this moniker ever since his first release for seminal Belgian techno label R&S Records back in 1990, and since released records through labels like Smalltown Supersound, Full Pupp and his own Love OD Communications imprint. He has also played live in clubs and festivals around the globe and both collaborated with, and remixed a long list of other artists. In addition to his Mental Overdrive output, Martinsen has composed music and done sound design for several films and exhibitions, written dystopian transmedia novels and occasionally exhibited his own cross-platform installation works. He now resides in his Arctic hometown of Tromsø, Northern Norway, where he also runs his Love OD Communications imprint, releasing material from artists such as Boska, Charlotte Bendiks and Le Petit Garcon.
