CREATOR OF AUDACITY

GUEST

SPEAKER


Roger B. Dannenberg is Professor of Computer Science, Art & Music at Carnegie Mellon University, where he teaches and conducts research in computer music. He is best known for Audacity, an open source audio editor that has been downloaded over 250M times, patents on computer accompaniment that formed the technical basis for SmartMusic, and languages for computer music including Nyquist. Dannenberg is also a trumpet player and recently composed the opera  La Mare dels Peixos  with Jorge Sastre.

Presentation: Audacity and Other Audaciousness

Abstract: Audacity, the open source audio editor, is one of the best known things to come out of my lab at Carnegie Mellon, but it is just one step along the way of exploring the intersection of computer science and music. I'll describe the origins and maybe future of Audacity and talk about other projects, including various projects to integrate computers into live performance, programming languages for music synthesis, automatic generation of pop music, music education, and applications of machine learning to music.
