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.
