An interesting lecture.

Started by Jerry Avins May 17, 2012
I just returned from a Princeton Section ACM/IEEE-CS meeting at which 
the speaker was Joo Won Park. He is an assistant professor of music at 
Community College of Philadelphia and an electronic musician and 
composer. Those who read Korean might like his website at 
http://www.joowon.net/. It somehow reminded me of an old New Yorker 
cartoon whose caption was, "Yes, but it it art?" I enjoyed the session.

so Jerry, what did Prof Park talk about at the ACM/IEEE meeting? about electronic music? -- r b-j rbj@audioimagination.com "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

He demonstrated results without going into the algorithms that created them. Doing that, he showcased a program -- really a GUI for a program -- that he did much of his work with. When I wrote I had hoped that his wev site would be informative. Maybe it is, but I don't speak or read Korean.

results regarding what? music synthesis? sound analysis? computer composition?
