>>>>       Introduction to Yamaha VL Synthesizers and Algorithmic
                  Composition in Common LISP

       June 27 - July 8, 1994;  Fee:  $800.
       Two weeks hands-on instruction.  Limited to 20 participants.
       Instructors:  Heinrich Taube, Alex Igoudin, Fernando Lopez
       Lezcano, Chris Chafe.

This course will cover basic principles and techniques of algorithmic
composition.  Sound synthesis as used in course examples will include
MIDI, the (realtime) Music Kit and (non-realtime) Common Lisp Music
and Common Music  Notation. Yamaha synthesizers used in the course
will include the VL-1 and SY-77.  The course will be taught on both
Unix and Mac workstations using Lisp and Common Music / Stella
environment*.  No prior experience with the Lisp programming
language is assumed.

>>>>     Advanced Projects in Algorithmic Composition


           July 11 - July 22, 1994;  Fee:  $800.

Topics are continued from the first course but emphasis is placed on
developing  programming skills while working on individual projects
of the student's own  choosing.

[Students may take the full 4 week course at a reduced tuition rate
of $1400.]

>>>>    Intensive Music/Audio Digital Signal Processing and
               Spectral Modeling Synthesis (SMS)


        July 5 -July 15 (or July 23), 1994; Fee: $1200.
        Two weeks instruction.   Limited to 15 participants.
        One week optional project or study.
        Instructors: Xavier Serra, Julius O. Smith, Perry R. Cook.

This course will cover analysis and synthesis of music signals based
on physical models and spectral models. This year only, there will be
a special emphasis on spectral models due to the unique availability
of Dr. Xavier Serra.
The course will be organized into morning lectures covering
theoretical aspects of the models, and afternoon seminars for
presenting and discussing specific implementations and applications
of the models *.
The morning lectures will present Fourier theory, spectrum analysis,
STFT, the phase vocoder, digital waveguides, digital filter theory,
pitch  detection, and linear predictive coding (LPC). In the
afternoon seminars, several implementations of physical models and
programs based on SMS will be presented.
For specific projects based on SMS, there will be an option to stay a
week longer.  Familiarity with engineering, mathematics and physics
is required.

>>>>       Music Printing with Small Computers using SCORE


         July 11 - July 22, 1994;  Fee:  $700.
         Two weeks instruction. Limited to 8 participants.
         Instructor:  Leland Smith

This course will cover the details of the use of the SCORE software
program for the creation of publication-quality music typography on
PC compatible computers.  Emphasis will be placed on the production
of individual participant's projects.

Housing costs are not included in the course fee.  Campus housing  is
available through the Stanford University Conference Office.
Participants can bring their own computer. No academic credit is
offered for participation in the workshops.
*  All source code and documents from the workshop are free to take.
