[Nettime-nl] [ STEIM ] Announcement Podium Discussion March 18th

Title: Announcement Podium Discussion March 18th

STEIM presents on tuesday, 18th March at 20.30h:

Composer and interactive computer musician Bill Hsu, of San Francisco State University, will overview the underlying theory and several systems for modal synthesis.  Modal synthesis approximates the resonances of sound spectra. It is a promising approach for real-time generation of sounds from real objects with inharmonic spectra, such as bells, glass bottles, wooden blocks, woks etc.  The emphasis will be on building and using models that can be adapted for real-time performance, where parameters can be adjusted to reflect different types of excitation,including striking with hard sticks and soft mallets, and scraping and bowing. For this he will present an MSP-based system based on externals and patches.

Biographical note:

Bill Hsu is an Associate Professor of Computer Science
at San Francisco State University. He has worked with
performance interfaces, real-time sound synthesis, and
interactive sound installations. Other interests include
computer architecture and performance evaluation.
