TT14 - CENTER FOR COMPUTER RESEARCH IN MUSIC AND ACOUSTICS (CCRMA)
Visit Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). Over its 30 year history, CCRMA has played a major role in the development of FM synthesis, physical modeling, and computer music composition. The Knoll, CCRMA's newly renovated home, was originally built as the Stanford Presidents' home. The Music Department occupied the building beginning in 1946 and CCRMA moved the historical facilities in 1986. The Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989 damaged much of the building, leaving the third floor unsafe for occupants. Last August CCRMA moved back into the restored building after a year of construction. The new facility includes a recording studio, three project studios, a performance space, teaching facilities, a cutting-edge listening room, and 40 networked Linux stations.
Price: $40 for members and $50 for nonmembers.
Technical Tours are made available on a first come, first served basis.
Tickets can be purchased during normal registration hours at the convention center.
