Raitis Smits - Emerging Techno-Ecological Art Practices - the Poetics of Green Energy

Location: 
CCRMA Classroom
Event Type: 
Guest Colloquium
Today we are witnessing the transformation process from new media to post media situation which is characterized not only by equality and convergence of different media technologies but also by emergence of new "techno-ecological" paradigm. Artists, like those from the Renewable Network who once were in vanguard exploring digital frontiers, today are among those who are engaged in the quest for a more sustainable future. By working together with scientists and farmers, urban gardeners and rural communities, media archeologists and future visionaries, the artists are bringing to foreground ecological issues, yet staying rooted in new media.

Moving Auditory EEGs out of the Lab

Date: 
Fri, 02/13/2015 - 11:00am - 12:30pm
Location: 
CCRMA Seminar Room
Event Type: 
Hearing Seminar

It's now time to take EEG out of the lab and into the real world. Our speaker on February 13 will talk about his efforts to build a mobile EEG recording device and validate its performance with an auditory task.  Maarten De Vos received his PhD from KU Leuven (Belgium) and is visiting Stanford for a few months, before heading to a faculty position at Oxford.

His validation experiments are interesting because he describes them as a means of decoding attention.  He's using P300 attention-modulated correlates to measure what people are attending to.  Very interesting.

  Who: Maarten De Vos (University of Oldenberg, Oxford and visiting Stanford)

They Shoot Lasers, Don't They? - Adam Tinkle and Joe Mariglio - aka CREOSOTA

Date: 
Mon, 02/09/2015 - 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: 
CCRMA Stage
Event Type: 
Concert

Electroacoustic musicians and sound sculptors Adam Tinkle and Joe Mariglio - henceforth collectively known as Creosota - explore the visual, sonic, and theatrical potentials of projected light, vibrated fluids, and laser microphony, in works inspired by Inferometrics. Inferometric techniques are best known for their use in Cold War-era spying. Shine a laser at a window, measure the displacement of the reflection--poof, you have the sound of the conversation occurring inside the room. Creosota's reframing of this technology and the resulting artistic revelations may also prove helpful for those seeking to welcome Musean hypernumbers, cymatics, or music tuned to 432Hz into their lives!
