Moving Auditory EEGs out of the Lab

CCRMA-Stanford University - Sun, 01/25/2015 - 21:52
Date:  Fri, 02/13/2015 - 11:00am - 12:30pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar

It's now time to take EEG out of the lab and into the real world. Our speaker on February 13 will talk about his efforts to build a mobile EEG recording device and validate its performance with an auditory task.  Maarten De Vos received his PhD from the University of Oldenberg and is visiting Stanford for a few months, before heading to a faculty position at Oxford.

His validation experiments are interesting because he describes them as a means of decoding attention.  He's using mismatched negativity to measure what people are attending to.  Very interesting.

  Who: Maarten De Vos (University of Oldenberg, Oxford and visiting Stanford)

Dimitri Bouche - Scheduling & Time Structures in Computer­ Assisted Composition

CCRMA-Stanford University - Tue, 01/20/2015 - 02:42
Date:  Wed, 02/04/2015 - 5:15pm - 6:15pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom Event Type:  Guest Colloquium Music composers’ work with computers is generally divided in the two distinct stages of composition and performance. Each stage requires specific methodology and software: computer-­aided composition involves time and high computation capabilities to produce complex musical scores, while performance and live rendering require reactive environments with precise real‐time constraints. Contemporary music composers permanently challenge these kinds of established categories, using unusual objects and behaviors in their music or considering the variations in performance as an actual part of the composition.
