********* STANFORD UNIVERSITY CCRMA SUMMER WORKSHOPS 1994 *********** >>>> 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. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ------------------------ 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.
