Nicolas Bernier, from Montreal, Quebec will be launching an exhibition and performing at the Visible Bits, Audible Bytes festival on Wed 12th March. Nicolas will be headlining the festival, fresh from being recognised as one of the finest artists in his field with the top prize at the prestigious Ars Electronica festival in Linz, Austria. Visible Bits, Audible Bytes also features talks and performances from a range of national and international artists, including Alo Allik, Ryo Ikeshiro, Thierry Gauthier, François Bayle and Piotr Kamler.The event begins at 3pm and is completely free. Places can be booked via the Phoenix box office and website. Nicolas’s exhibition Frequencies (a) will launch at the event and continue at Phoenix until the 22nd March. An installation of sound and light, the artwork merges the piercing hum of mechanically-triggered tuning forks with pure digital soundwaves. Streams of light burst in harmony with the forks, alternately illuminating the exhibition in stark white light and plunging it into complete darkness.

Estonian artist Alo Allik has performed his audio-visual works, compositions, eclectic DJ sets and live electronic music throughout the world. UK-based Japanese artist Ryo Ikeshiro’s works include live audio-visual performances, interactive installations, electronic music, and soundtracks.Thierry Gauthier is a Canadian composer and visual artist with an experimental approach to composition. François Bayle, born in Madagascar, is one of the most distinguished living composers of electronic music, having headed the prestigious Groupe de Recherches Musicales from 1966-97. Piotr Kamler is a renowned Polish filmmaker known for his cutting edge work in animation. [SE 27.02]

Anssi Klapuri - Gamified musical instrument learning: music processing techniques and learning curve optimization

CCRMA-Stanford University - Wed, 03/12/2014 - 00:42
Date:  Wed, 03/19/2014 - 5:15pm - 7:00pm Location:  Rm 217, CCRMA classroom, 660 Lomita Drive, Stanford Event Type:  Colloquium  Playing a musical instrument and playing video games share certain similarities as activities. That has enabled successful music-oriented games such as Rock Band or Guitar Hero, but even more importantly, gamified e-learning applications seem to have particularly high potential for learning certain aspects of musical instrument skills. This talk shares experiences from developing the game GuitarBots, where any real guitar is used as a game controller and the microphone signal is analyzed to figure out the user’s actions.
