Seven Harvard Talks
One of the presentation slides from my dissertation colloquium.
The six previous talks were:
- Fall 2005 Incoming PhD student, I presented some of my compositions in the fields of chamber music, dance & music, and interaction with live electronics. Violinist and composer Hillary Zipper joined me very friendly and we performed excerpts from Plex, a composition for violin and live electronics.
- Fall 2006 I was blessed to have the Ying string quartet for this talk. We played together a preview of the two first movements of Carlina acaulis for contrabass clarinet and string quartet. I presented my work in progress, including the drafts and ideas for the third movement, that wasn't completed at the time.
- Fall 2007 During the musicologists' colloquium series, I presented my explorations of granular synthesis and spectral sound processing. The spectral domain part of the talk was a summary of the article A Tutorial on Spectral Sound Processing with Max/MSP and Jitter.
- Spring 2008 In a talk entitled "Music Online and Online Music", I went from making music available online (youtube, myspace, last.fm, etc.) to creating online-based musical projects (like 60/60).
- Spring 2009 "Formula Composition in Lapalu and Viola palustris" or how these two compositions are integral serial compositions (well, from a certain point of view!) I showed the kitchen-side of the composition process, presenting drafts, schemes, etc. I also presented details of my hardware set-up and Max/MSP/Jitter patches to perform Lapalu.
- Spring 2009 In the Huseac Studio Users Group, I spend time on my Max/MSP/Jitter patch for slicing a sound in performance time. This spectrally-based slicing patch is available on the cycling74 share page.
