TT9 - Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA)

Stanford University's CCRMA ( is a multi-disciplinary facility where composers and researchers work together using computer-based technology both as an artistic medium and as a research tool. Past courses have included “Auditory Remapping of Bioinformatics,” “Psychophysics and Cognitive Psychology for Musicians,” “Orchestration and Timbre Analysis,” and “Perceptual Audio Coding.” This is a rare opportunity to tour the entire three-story facility located in “The Knoll” on the Stanford campus, which includes a large space with multichannel sound for teaching, concerts, and acoustic experimentation, as well as the “Listening Room”' that features full-spherical loudspeaker arrangements that enable new research in synthetic acoustical space. Graduate students and staff will be on hand to demonstrate some of their latest work.

Technical Tours are made available on a first come, first served basis to anyone with an All Access badge. Tickets can be purchased during normal registration hours at the convention center.
