Ge Wang, a Stanford University assistant professor in the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics, discussed the transformative possibilities of music and computing to make art, strange new instruments and connections to people around the world during an ATLAS Speaker Series presentation on March 18, 2013.
Wang researches programming languages and interactive software systems for computer-generated music. He is the author of the music programming language ChucK, which is an audio programming language for real-time synthesis, composition, performance and analysis (see http://chuck.cs.princeton.edu/). He demonstrated apps that can turn an iPhone into a flute or an iPad into a stringed instrument.
His talk explored the development of laptop and mobile phone orchestras (including the local Boulder Laptop Orchestra, also known as BLOrk), computer music languages and social music apps – all examples of an emerging, growing space where computers, music and people interact.
The ATLAS Speaker Series is made possible by a generous donation by Idit Harel Caperton and Anat Harel.
