General topics for conversation

  •  ?


  • October 5, 2:30pm
    • Discuss goals for the semester
    • Possible outcomes:
      • Conference or journal publication
      • Compositions to be performed by ourselves, with PLOrk in Spring, other?

    • Scheduling - let's do every week for now, as long as people can make it
    • Possible papers to read together?
    • Things we want Rebecca or someone else to lecture on?
  • October 12, 2:30pm
    • Walked through system architecture, what a SynthClass looks like
    • Konrad showed his Max/MSP synthesis code, which integrates with a larger Max/MSP patch using patter
    • Dan brought in the magic 3D knob and hooked it up for feature extraction in Max, then we sent the features out to Wekinator via OSC. Turned it into obnoxious physical model controller.
    • Cameron brought in a drum w/ 2 pickups, verified that we could detect "hit" versus "silent" using basic audio features.
  • October 19, 2:30pm
    • Updates: some additions to documentation, skeleton code for you to start with
    • Try out better feature extractors w/ Cameron's drum
    • Discuss some interface options for data set creation / annotation
