Triple CCRMAlite: 40, 50, 80
Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA)
Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA, pronounced "karma") has been on the scene of electronic and computer-generated sound, since, well, before there was a scene.
We are proud in 2014 to be celebrating three important moments in the history of CCRMA and of computer music: founder John Chowning's 80th birthday; the 50th anniversary of the first computer music program on campus (in the form of a stack of punch cards); and the 40th anniversary of CCRMA.
Please join us for a Science Fair showcasing current student research, and a concert featuring works by John Chowning (including a première of a new piece), fellow computer music pioneer Jean-Claude Risset, and CCRMA alumni Kotoka Suzuki and Leah Reid.
And for those who can't make it in person, there will be a live stream of the concert online.
