General Information

Graduate Seminar, Fall 2010 into Spring 2011

Trinity College Dublin Music Department

Dan Trueman


What this year-long bi-weekly seminar ends up being will depend on participant interest.

Possible subjects

  • laptops and performance
  • networks, local and distance
  • instrument building, including:
    • output: speaker design
    • input: sensors, controllers, hacked thingies, touch surfaces, etc...
    • mapping: explicit, new machine learning approaches (implicit), etc...
    • synthesis
    • signal processing
    • programming: ChucK, Max/MSP, Processing, others...
    • the notion of "composed instruments"
    • and much more
  • rhythm, meter, time, perception and machines
  • algorithms, technology, and composition/creativity
  • transmission and notation
  • we could become a band and make up and play some music together?
  • or not...
  • and whatever else comes up!


I'd like this to function in part as a pro-seminar, where participants share their own work over the course of the year and get feedback from others. It can also end up partially hands-on, where we build/hack/code things together or in groups. Let's see what happens!!

Participants

  • Dan Trueman, dtrueman AT princeton.edu
  • names, email addresses (bot obscured), of everyone else
