Computer research in music and acoustics (CCRMA)

François Rose

François Rose received his Bachelor and Master degrees in composition from McGill University, and his Ph.D. from the University of California-San Diego. He also studied with Tristan Murail, at the Institut de Recherche Coordination Acoustique et Musique (IRCAM), and with Gérard Grisey at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris.

Doug L. James

Doug L. James is a Full Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University (since June 2015), and was previously an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Cornell University (2006-2015). He holds three degrees in applied mathematics, including a Ph.D. in 2001 from the University of British Columbia. In 2002 he joined the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University as an Assistant Professor, before joining Cornell in 2006. His research interests include computer graphics, computer sound, physically based modeling and animation, and reduced-order physics models.

Nolan Lem

Nolan Lem is an artist and researcher whose work reflects a broad range of influences and mediums. He has premiered work at the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History (NYC), Pioneer Works Center for Art and Innovation (BK), The Wallach Gallery (NYC), Flux Fair, Riverside Park, Columbia University, Spencer Museum of Art, and the NIME (New Interfaces for Musical Expression) Conference among others. He has received commissions from the National Science Foundation (NSF), West Harlem Art Fund and the Hall Center for the Humanities.

Charlie Sdraulig

Charlie Sdraulig's music explores interaction that examines the roles of physicality and perception in human performance. This exploration often takes place at the threshold of audibility. The inherent ambiguity of this context may allow a particular expression of human individuality to emerge.

Matt Wright

Dr. Matthew Wright is a media systems designer, improvising composer/musician, and computer music researcher.  He was the Musical Systems Designer at U.C.

Gautham Mysore

Gautham is a principal scientist and head of the Audio Research Group at Adobe Research in San Francisco. His research involves developing new machine learning and signal processing algorithms for a wide variety of real-world audio applications. He has previously been a visiting researcher at the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit at the University College London, and has previously spent time at Microsoft Research and the department of Electrical Communication Engineering at the Indian Institute of Science.

Spencer Salazar

Spencer Salazar is a doctoral student at Stanford CCRMA. His research is focused on systems and forms for computer-based music expression, composition, and experience. Previously, he has created new software and hardware interfaces for the ChucK audio programming language, developed prototype consumer electronics for top technology companies, architected large-scale social music interactions for Smule, an iPhone application developer, and composed for laptop and mobile phone ensembles.

Kurt Werner

I'm Dr. Kurt James Werner, a Lecturer in Audio @ the Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) @ Queen's University Belfast. I'm active as a researcher and writer, composer of electro-acoustic/acousmatic (&c.) music, author of digital signal processing code & compositional algorithms, & circuit-bender. My research focuses on theoretical aspects of wave digital filters and other virtual analog topics, computer modeling of circuit-bent instruments, & the history of music technology.

Madeline Huberth

Madeline Huberth graduated from Stanford University’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics in June, 2018. Her research intersects music psychology and the study of gesture in performance, exploring production and perception of polyphony using EEG, motion capture, and behavioral studies. Prior to coming to CCRMA, she received a B.M. in Cello Performance and a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Physics from the University of Michigan, and her masters from the University of Cambridge as a Gates Cambridge Scholar.
